Sea Level: On the Edge [Capricorn, 1978]
It becomes clearer and clearer that these are Dixie dregs indeed. Ringing over the Allmans' inexorable flow, Chuck Leavell's Tyneresque piano chordings used to provide a satisfying simulation of spiritual uplift, but in a fusion I'll take Lonnie Liston Smith (if you can believe that). Nor is Randall Bramblett (even) a Joe Henderson on saxophone. Bramblett does contribute four strong songs. Unfortunately, three are available on his second solo album, Light of the Night, in arrangements that demonstrate conclusively the arbitrariness of these.
