Two Headed Freap is the debut album by American organist Ronnie Foster recorded in 1972 and released on the Blue Note label.[2]

Reception

The AllMusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4½ stars and stated „Everything on Two Headed Freap is about glitzy groove -- it sounds cinematic, colorful, and funky. It’s true that there is little real improvisation here and the songs all have a similar groove, but it’s worked well, and the music is ultimately appealing to fans of this genre. Jazz purists -- even soul-jazz purists -- will likely find this music a little monotonous and commercial, but fans of early-’70s funk from Sly Stone to Herbie Hancock will find something of interest here“.[3]

Ronnie Foster (born May 12, 1950) is an American funk and soul jazz organist, and record producer. His albums recorded for Blue Note Records in the 1970s have gained a cult following after the emergence of acid jazz.[1]

Early life

Foster was born in Buffalo, New York, on May 12, 1950.[1] He attended Public School 8, Woodlawn Jr. High for a year, McKinley Vocational High School for two years, and then spent his final year at Lafayette High School.[2] The only formal musical instruction he received was a month of accordion lessons.[2] He was attracted to music at the age of four, took it more seriously from his early teens, and had his first professional gig aged fifteen, playing in a strip club.[2]

Later life and career

Foster initially performed with other local musicians.[2] He moved to New York City with his own band, and acquired a publishing company.[2] Foster has performed as a sideman with a wide range of musicians.[1] He frequently worked with guitarist George Benson,[1] including playing on the guitarist’s album Breezin‘.[3] Foster has also played organ with Grant Green, Grover Washington, Jr., Stanley Turrentine, Roberta Flack, Earl Klugh, Harvey Mason, Jimmy Smith, and Stevie Wonder.[1] He is also a record producer.[1] Ronnie Foster’s song „Mystic Brew“, was sampled in Electric Relaxation by A Tribe Called Quest as well as later in J. Cole’s song Forbidden Fruit.
