The Best of Alphonse Mouzon - Студийный альбом от Alphonse Mouzon. В альбом вошло 16 треков.

Megadrummer and percussionist Alphonse Mouzon recorded Virtue, his lone date for Germany's MPS, in 1976, and the label issued it in 1977. As far as fusion records go, these were not particularly good years, but Virtue is an example of the very best of what electric jazz had to offer at the time. Mouzon was half of a pair of drummers who defined the fusion era - the other was Billy Cobham

Virtue ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM). Promising Music, MPS Records.

Alphonse Lee Mouzon (November 21, 1948 – December 25, 2016) was an American jazz fusion drummer and the owner of Tenacious Records, a label that primarily released Mouzon's recordings. He was a composer, arranger, producer, and actor. He gained popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Mouzon, of African, French, and Blackfoot indian descent, was born on November 21, 1948, in Charleston, South Carolina.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Virtue is an album by Alphonse Mouzon that has been out-of-print for years now and it is great to see this issued for the first time on cd. This is great stuff! All familiar with Alphonse Mouzon know that during his fusion years there was no better drummer (perhaps Billy Cobham-debatable!) and this cd is great especially the drum suite. 10 people found this helpful.
