Music history was made in February, 1963 at Capitol Records Studio A in Hollywood. That's when Howard Roberts began recording a series of albums that would set the standard for compelling guitar-oriented arrangements. The series beginning with Color Him Funky. capitalized on the interplay between guitar and organ (courtesy Paul Bryant and Burkley Kendrix, respectively). Howard's playing is superb, sophisticated and at times ferocious, with blistering solos that testify to the hard-driving style of this architect of the 60s West Coast Sound.
