3 pieces: vibes of truth


Exact reissue on vinyl of a lush-sounding soul-funk album on the Fantasy label, dating from 1975. This was the band's only LP and it was produced by Donald Byrd of Blackbyrds fame.

“Vibes Of Truth” is a masterpiece that covers all the bases: from soul through funk to jazz. It’s been sought-after by collectors for the three club friendly tunes within its grooves: ‘Backed Up Against The Wall’, ‘Concrete Jungle’ and ‘I Need You Girl’. The album was brought to Fantasy by Donald Byrd then enjoying great success with his productions for the Blackbyrds, who he met when they were students on a course he taught at Howard University, and his own jazz fusion albums on Blue Note. Lincoln Ross, the multi-instrumentalist leader of the 3 Pieces was also a former student of Byrd’s. Although the 3 Pieces failed to repeat the success of the Blackbyrds, they created an amazing album.
