Whether you know it or not everyone's heard Axelrod, the jazz composer and producer was a machine for making breaks, funk and heavy hitting stabs of melody that were manna from heaven for beat collectors. 'Heavy Axe' features Johnny 'Guitar' Wilson, Cannonball Aderley and George Duke an ace squad of players to carve out this jazz-rock monster. Serious grooves and funk all over this mother.


Legendary composer & producer David Axelrod’s solo album Heavy Axe is a jazz-rock opus that encapsulated the preeminent sound of the of the mid ‘70s. With a little help from legendary players like Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Cannonball Adderley and George Duke, Heavy Axe crisscrosses between lush funk sounds and full, round low end and majestic orchestral flourishes that made Axelrod’s sonic realm a goldmine for sample-hungry hip-hop beatmakers from the ‘90s until today. This 180-gram reissue of Heavy Axe was cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI, and comes packaged in a tip-on jacket.
