Melvin Sparks - Live At Nectar’s 12" Vinyl

$20.00

12" Black Vinyl with Digital Download Card included!

Lovingly mixed by NMS guitarist & producer Eddie Roberts, this very special live album documents the last recorded performance by soul jazz’s elder statesman, Melvin Sparks at Nectar’s in Burlington, VT, just months before his death in 2011. The multi-tracks had been sitting on a dusty shelf for six years when NMS drummer and label guy Simon Allen was approached by fellow sticksman Bill Carbone - Melvin’s right-hand man at the time of the recording - who felt it merited a vinyl release. Simon and Eddie instantly agreed - Melvin’s music has always been a joyful source of inspiration for The New Mastersounds.

The album has been a labor of love and only made possible thanks to the kind co-operation of Melvin’s family, and of the Nectar’s team. Melvin and Bill are joined here by Kung Fu organist Beau Sasser, as well as the Grippo Horns (Phish) - Dave Grippo and Brian McCarthy.
