Eddie Fisher

The Third Cup (Verve By Request): Vinyl LP


Release date: 29 March, 2024

A singular album from the jazz guitarist — more well-known for his later period funk records — Fisher grooves here with a stripped-down jazz sound and group featuring organ and a second guitarist in Phil Westmoreland. Soul and style prevail, especially on the title track and a transcendent 12-minute take on ‘The Shadow Of Your Smile’. This Verve By Request title is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Third Man in Detroit.
