Weinstein's Fusionfunkysouljazz Part 4

Reuben Wilson - "We're In Love"

This one is a late release from Blue Note in 1971. Blue Note's success came to a halt when fusion jazz came around in the late 60s. Reuben Wilson was a LA-based organist who had gone to high school with jazz legend Bobby Hutcherson. Rueben Wilson's output went from soul jazz to downright funk. We can't hate a guy for trying to feed his family. Each release of his went more and more commercial, but still sounded good. By the way, this song sounds familiar doesn't it? I think Langdon and Tsuji might know this one.
