about

Stanton Davis originally created this seminal jazz funk masterpiece back in 1977. It’s being reissued for the first time on CD after many years of being left in obscurity. Every track from start to finish is top notch, featuring beautiful instrumentation and complex arrangements.

Stanton Davis was mentored by the great jazz legend George Russell and later formed the Ghetto Mysticism Band in Boston, MA. He and the group performed exciting live shows in the city all throughout the ‘70s.

Brighter Days showcases an array of uptempo jazz funk stylings, from the fast-paced fury of "Things Cannot Stop Forever" to the deep space sound of "Space A Nova I" (already featured on Gilles Peterson’s Revolutionary Jazz compilation) to the atmospheric instrumentation of "Play Sleep" to the beautiful vocals of “Brighter Days” and the loose funk groove of “Funky Fried Tofu.”
