Jean Carn: ● Doug and Jean Carn "Power and Glory" REVELATION/Black Jazz, Jean Carne - "If You Believe" (2003), Jean Carne - Don't Let It Go To Your Head, Jean

Jean Carn

Seminal song from the equally powerful BLACK JAZZ album from at the height of then husband/wife duo (yes, an earlier/purer version of the r&b/disco Jean Carn). Pure power, glory that is truly one of the greatest representations of the righteous black power/spiritual/electric jazz movement of the early 70s. First introduced to me from Paul when he was A&R at Talkin Loud in the early nineties. It has since never grown old. FIRE.
