IDRIS MUHAMMAD picture
Idris Muhammad (Arabic: إدريس محمد‎; born Leo Morris; November 13, 1939 – July 29, 2014) was an American jazz drummer who has recorded extensively with many musicians, including Ahmad Jamal, Lou Donaldson, and Pharoah Sanders, among many others.

At 16 years old, one of Muhammad's earliest recorded sessions as a drummer was on Fats Domino's 1956 hit "Blueberry Hill".

Muhammad was an endorser of Istanbul Agop Cymbals.

In 2012 Xlibris released the book Inside The Music: The Life of Idris Muhammad, which he wrote with his friend Britt Alexander. He died aged 74 in 2014.

He changed his name in the 1960s upon his conversion to Islam. In 1966, he married Dolores "LaLa" Brooks (former member of the Crystals; she converted to Islam with him and went for a time under the name Sakinah Muhammad). They separated in 1999. Together, they have two sons and two daughters, and one daughter from a previous marriage

IDRIS MUHAMMAD Power of Soul

Album · 1974 · Funk Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
js
There are probably two different ways you can look at Idris Muhammad’s “Power of Soul”; on the plus side this is a nice collection of sophisticated orchestrated lite funk jazz, on the negative tip this album represents the first steps towards the creation of the fuzak monster that devoured jazz for several years, maybe even decades. This album opens with “Power of Soul”, a great piece of kitschy horn driven soul jazz that sounds like it was lifted from a classic blaxploitation soundtrack. This one is pretty much the highlight of the album and features a great fuzz tone psychedelic guitar solo from Joe Beck as well as lots of intense hard driving horn ensemble lines.

The next three tunes that make up the rest of the album are all somewhat similar to each other, all three are very pleasant and sophisticated lounge funk tunes that feature excellent orchestrations from the then young up and coming Bob James. The individual soloists are also the best with special mention going to the hyper talented Grover Washington and Randy Brecker. Bob James’ top notch production and arrangements on here were mining a field similar to Creed Taylor at CTI. Both were borrowing heavily from the best easy listening and exotica arrangers, such as Henry Mancini and Les Baxter, to create a new modern approach to jazz arranging. Although a lot of this was attractive at first, later a cookie cutter sameness would take over and bland fuzak would rule the jazz radio stations for a long time to come. Still, this record has a lot more soul and hot playing and arranging then the mass of fuzak that would follow in its wake.
