Always been a sucker for jazz-funk instrumentals. Cool to find this. Pleasantly surprised to dig around and find how accomplished Floyd Morris' career was. The Johnny Pate Quintet (mid-50s), Al Grey, Oscar Brown Jr, Bobby Hutcherson, Donald Byrd, Junior Parker, Little Milton, Andre Williams, Curtis Mayfield, The Staple Singers, Barbara Lewis, Sam Cooke, The Chi-Lites... Just a few artists Floyd Morris played/recorded or composed with. Floyd recorded/released about ten 45s, also an LP from 1965. 'Mellow Mood' was written by Floyd, Andre Williams, and Leo Hutton. This is the "B" side flip to 'Bee Que.'
