A rare album, Fisher was originally released on the Nentu label in 1976. Think Grant Green meets Eddie Hazel. This LP has it all: gorgeous Soul Jazz, wahed-out fuzz rock, dirty, head-nodding funk rhythms.
A monster psychedelic soul-funk instrumental album. This is less jazzy than the “Third Cup” and “The Next One Hundred Years”, released by Chicago’s Cadet label and more cosmic psych funk across both sides and gets super exploratory and trippy.

Edward Thomas Fisher was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. His father, who had a feeling for the blues guitar, got Eddie involved in music at ten. For seven years, the keen young Fisher listened, planned, absorbed and got it together. At the age of seventeen, Eddie, he planned his escape from Little Rock. After graduating from high school, he made his move. his first stop was Memphis, Tennessee, where he studied with fine musicians and friends such as Robert Tally, Isaac Hayes, Willie Mitchell, Andrew Love, Steve Croper and many others. In time, the youthful Fisher was off again as band leader on national tours with Solomon Burke. After touring, Fisher headed to St.Louis, Mo., as band leader for Albert King. Finally hearing the call to jazz in the wilderness, he joined with Leo Gooden, who owned the star-studded Blue Note Club at 42nd Street, where the musical elite would meet Oliver Nelson, Dave Sunburn, Jimmy Smith, Oliver Lake, w/ Miles Davis, stopping to listen-see.

Eddie's first two albums, The Third Cup and The Next One Hundred Years for Chess-Cadet Records, began his international career. Eddie later signed with All Planitum Records, where he recorded his third album, Hot Lunch. Soon, Eddie established his record label, NENTU Records, where he recorded his next two albums, Fisher and The Promise. — (via Bandcamp)
