Jackie Mittoo Wishbone
- Words: David Katz
- Label: Light in the Attic
Studio One legend Jackie Mittoo, whose expressive organ talents made him Jamaica's equivalent to Jimmy Smith, migrated to Toronto in 1971. Wishbone, his debut Canadian disc reissued here, cloaks Mittoo's dynamic keyboard in funk and soul, but some songs ultimately suffer from over-production and gratuitous, schmaltzy strings, symptomatic of the time and place of recording. Nevertheless, strong numbers such as ""Grand Funk,"" the soulful "Soul Bird," a re-working of "Totally Together" called "Groovy Spirit," and the atmospheric title track outweigh the weak moments, and the fine packaging and excellent notes add to the appeal."
