Blacks and Blues, recorded in 1973 with the Mizell Brothers, was one of her biggest selling albums for Blue Note. On this album she shifted from the straight ahead jazz of her first two albums produced by George Butler. She sought out the Mizell Brothers after their work on Donald Byrd's Black Byrd, which combined funk with jazz. Blacks and Blues was recorded in three days at the Sound Factory. The album was dedicated to Duke Ellington, who died shortly before the album was released, and its cover art features Humphrey's daughter, Ricci Lynn. Fancy Dancer marked Humphrey's third and final collaboration with the Mizell Brothers. It includes Latin percussion and harp instrumentation by Dorothy Ashby

Bobbi Humphrey scored her biggest hit with her third album Blacks and Blues, an utterly delightful jazz-funk classic that helped make her a sensation at Montreux. If it sounds a lot like Donald Byrd's post-Black Byrd output, it's no accident; brothers Larry and Fonce Mizell have their fingerprints all over the album, and as on their work with Byrd, Larry handles all the composing and most of the arranging and production duties.

But hey, Humphrey's third Blue Note release was composed and produced in La La Land by brothers Fonce and Larry Mizell, masters of chilled-out jazz-funk

Recorded June 7 & 8, 1973 at Sound Factory, Hollywood, California. Mastered at Mastering Lab, Hollywood, California. Catalog number printed on the labels and the back cover: "BN-LA142-G". This version can be distinguished by the text on the labels. For example, on the other 1974 US pressing, the track numbers are right justified from the "1" in "Side 1" on the labels.

Bobbi does some singing on this album too in a girlish but charming voice. The ensembles found on the Mizell Bros albums were always filled with heavyweights and this one does not disappoint, with stalwart Harvey Mason on the drum kit and the regal King Erisson on congas pinning down the lush soundscapes to solid earth.

Album · 1974 · 6 Songs. On opener Chicago, Damn, Humphrey’s control of tone is laser-like, fitting easily alongside the synth sounds. And her vocals on Just a Love Child and Baby’s Gone have a lilting charm. The Mizell Brothers’ compositions and production smarts keep this artifact of the early-’70s fusion phenomenon feeling timeless. Blacks and Blues Bobbi Humphrey.
