Luther Thomas & Dizzazz – Turned Me Out

Luther Thomas was a talented alto-saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist who blended free jazz elements into his funk records.
“He was involved with the Black Artists Group starting in the 1960s, played in the Human Arts Ensemble with Charles Bobo Shaw in the 1970s, and led a group called Dizzazz in the early 1980s. He has also played saxophone for James Chance and the Contortions.”(source: Wikipedia)

Having heard Yo’ Momma, his 1981 album with Dizzazz, I find his work is magnificent, his career was unfairly neglected! Turned Me On Out!
