Love From The Sun is the last unalloyed jazz album recorded by drummer, composer and bandleader Norman Connors under his own name, before he changed course towards R&B and then descended--yes, let us embrace a judgemental moment--into the quagmires of disco and smooth jazz. In autumn 1973, when this album was recorded, Connors, who had made ...
