An extremely rare album left by Detroit-based jazz keyboard player Johnny Griffith known for the album 'Together, Togetherness' on RCA. 'The Music From The Connection' was composed by jazz pianist Freddie Redd for Jack Gelber's 1959 play 'The Connection'. This first recording of the music was released on the Blue Note label in 1960. In 1974 The pianist Johnny Griffith, who was a member of the prestigious Motown rhythm section Funk Brothers, covered the album 'The Connection' by Freddie Redd as a whole album, playing electric piano here, which really changes the vibe of the music - and the players are supposedly a host of Motown studio musicians - playing jazz here, but with a nice funky soul undercurrent. Originally released on Detroit Geneva Label.
