SONG OF THE DAY Ulysses Crockett – Funky Resurgence

Ulysses Crockett was a vibraphonist active in the Bay Area scene of the 1960’s. He emerged with his Latin Jazz group, Afro Blue Persuasion (who I intend to explore more in the future) and later went on to form new project, Ulysses Crockett Magic. He also played in The Skins w/ the legendary Bill Graham.

Crockett wrote Resurgence (b/w Tamura’s Theme) in 1971 for the hit play ‘Resurgence’ by Oakland’s John Ivey, older brother of James ‘Jay’ Ivey Congo on both tunes. Both tracks were laid down at Wally Heider studios in San Francisco and both are rather cool and groovy, but the A-side to this 45 is definitely my favourite out of the two tracks! It’s a bit nice for a slinky pre-slumber meander!

Funky Resurgence was one of several compositions he wrote for this stage show and was one of many ventures that kept him busy during the 1960’s as Ulysses also got through law school at the same time and remained a legal voice, writer and activist in the Bay Area from that moment on! Enjoy the funkiness above!
