Back to Paris

A live set recorded in 1980 at Le Dreher in Paris. Marion Brown and his band — pianist Hilton Ruiz , bassist Jack Gregg, and drummer Freddie Waits — deliver a set of mostly originals. Unique in the Brown canon due to it’s broad accessibility Latin rhythms, gospel, ballads and post-bop. Notable for the unique version of “Body and Soul,” with Ruiz’s stride piano and Waits playing at march tempo behind him.
