With lots love and admiration from music enthusiasts everywhere flutist, Bobbi Humphrey was considered one of the premier instrumentalist in the early seventies [1971 respectively]. But, it wasn’t until her “Blacks and Blues,” album emerged in 1973 that her credibility as a female artist begin to ascend to brake the barriers in jazz were men only reign as kings.
Ironically, while I was looking for something enticing to listen to. So I decided to not only revisit Ms. Humphrey’s “Blacks and Blues, and Satin Doll” records but her poignant attributes as a player echoed repeatedly in my head to listen to more music by her. And what do you know, I stumbled across her 1975 release called “Fancy Dancer,” which was, also on Blue Note Records and produced once again by the fabulous Mizell Brothers.
