The Afro Blues Quintet Plus One was formed in 1963 by leader and vibes player Joseph "Little Joe" DeAguero. The six man band featured saxophonist Jack Fulks, a veteran of Chico Hamilton's band; and pianist Bill Henderson who also played bass, drums, flute and vibes. Henderson had previously played with Terry Gibbs' band. The original drummer was Jim Keltner who went on to become one of the most popular session drummers in pop history. On their classic 1966 self-titled album "The Afro-Blues Quintet Plus One," the lineup was Joe de Aguero on vibes; Jack Fulks on alto sax & flute; Bill Henderson on piano; Michales Davis on timbales & traps; Norman Johnson on bass; and Moses Obligacion on congas. The sound of the band is very reminiscent of the Ramsey Lewis group, with the accent on gospel tinged, R&B flavored soul jazz. The highly collectible album finally makes it's debut in the digital domain. All selections newly remastered.
