Jazz fans be warned: Larry Young's Mother Ship has arrived. Recorded in 1969, this wonderfully funky craft enjoys its first CD release on Blue Note. Manning the controls are Young on organ, Lee Morgan on trumpet, Herbert Morgan on tenor sax, and Eddie Gladden on drums. Though Herbert Morgan and Gladden never became instantly identifiable jazz figures, their performances here are worthy of everyone's attention. As heard throughout the album, Young propels this song with abandon, often shedding structure and pace for pure emotion, though always with taste. Under the tent of an un-chartered cosmic circus, "Visions" continues the entertainment on Mother Ship, with all members twisting about Gladden's beats into a high flying jazz act. ADVERTISEMENT. The most daring stunt, though, is the nearly thirteen minute adventure of "Trip Merchant.

Recorded in 1969, 'Mother Ship' would be Larry Young's last 'jazz' record, and his last recording for the Blue Note label. The cover of the album shows him in a traditionally dark jazz club wearing a black tie and coat, in a few months he would be wearing a dashiki and playing psychedelic jazz rock with Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and John McLaughlin. For those interested in Larry's transition from jazzist to fusion rocker, this LP has a lot of music that shows Young clearly in between the two worlds, and obviously moving further away from jazz.
Organist Larry Young's final Blue Note album, Mother Ship, was not released until 1980. Teamed up with tenor saxophonist Herbert Morgan, the great trumpeter Lee Morgan, and drummer Eddie Gladden, Young performs five of his originals, which range from the funky "Street Scene" and the samba "Love Drops" to a spacy "Trip Merchant" and the complex "Visions. This highly original set does not deserve to be so obscure.
