Gears (180g LP - Jazz Dispensary Exclusive)
Limited to 2,000 copies on 180-gram black vinyl, exclusive to the Jazz Dispensary and Craft Recordings stores.
Marking Johnny Hammond’s first album with Milestone Records, the jazz-funk opus Gears garnered critical acclaim upon its release and was a Top 40 hit on Billboard’s Jazz chart. Single “Los Conquistadores Chocolatés” was a crossover success, landing in the Top 5 of Billboard’s Dance Club Songs and Disco Singles charts. In the decades since its release, however, Gears has only grown in its cult status, being sampled by the likes of Erykah Badu and Kendrick Lamar.
The album was cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed on audiophile-quality 180-gram vinyl at RTI. The LP is housed in a tip-on jacket, featuring faithfully reproduced original designs.
