Terry Callier - Welcome Home (4 stars)

Terry Callier - Welcome Home

(Mr Bongo Recordings)


Terry Callier, a true great, overlooked back in the day, but now receiving the recognition he deserves after UK DJ’s picked up his classic 70’s cuts. Welcome is a live recording from The Jazz Café, a taster prior to his Hidden Conversations album which included collaborations with Massive Attack. The recording has that unmistakable aura of a master at work, offering an organic mix of folk, soul and jazz across the album’s 11 tracks. There are some beautiful pieces, with ‘And I Love Her’, ‘Timepeice’ and ‘What About Me (What You Gonna Do About Me?)’ being particular standouts. Timeless stuff from a musical gem.
