New York Mary – Zoo Mouth (Arista Records) 1976 www.facebook.com/groups/boogieland
From the second album, A Piece of the Apple, released in 1976… track number 4.
- Bruce Johnstone: Baritone Sax, Alto Sax, Flute
- Rick Petrone: Electric Bass, Phaser Bass
- Joe Corsello: Drums and Percussion
- Ron Friedman: Trumpet, Electric Trumpet, Flugelhorn
- Robert Aries: Electric Piano, Synthesizer
After touring the world with Maynard, Rick got together with some buds to form the group New York Mary, pioneering the way in and for the just-invented niche of jazz-fusion and hoo doggy did they do it well!
Sadly, the big wigs at the record label are the ultimate authority on who lives and dies musically and I guess my heroes didn’t sell enough platters for their liking, so they cut the boys off after just two albums.
I mean, really.
Money. It’s all only about tje money. I hate the stuff, personally. It causes pain. In the world our species has created one absolutely needs it, but I hate it nonetheless.
