By the late 1960s, drummer Roy Porter had already worked with some of jazz's true greats (Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie included), spent time in prison and weened himself off heavy drugs. It was at this point that he founded Roy Porter Sound Machine, a heavyweight jazz-funk combo with a penchant for raw rhythm and blues. The band's 1971 debut LP, Jessica, is one of the most magnificent sets in his vast discography and certainly his rarest, as this timely reissue proves. Featuring sweaty, floor-ready rhythms from Porter, beefy bass, wild electric piano licks, fuzzy guitars and some fine brass arrangements, the album is as good a collection of jazz-funk/funk fusion tracks as you're ever likely to hear.
