Mingo Lewis — Flight Never Ending
(Columbia PC 34260, 1976, LP)
by Mike McLatchey, Published 2016-10-20
As far as I know all the CD versions of this are pirated at this point — it's a wonder why this Columbia LP hasn't gotten at least a bare bones reissue. Fusion of this sort isn't usually right in my ballpark, although I do tend to like a lot of mid-70s albums in this style, but hey if you want to hear it being done well, this is a very, very good example, especially considering it's led by an ex-Santana percussionist with a lot of relative unknowns filling the other chairs.
