Customer Reviews

A fine debut album!

If all you know of Edgar Winter is "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride", you owe it to yourself to savor the much finer flavors of this debut album. Obviously recorded with a very limited budget, Entrace depends much more on good musicianship that the heavy production of later albums. Jazz, blues, gospel and a good splash of pop can all be heard in this collection of songs. You can even hear a snippet of music that will evolve years later into Edgar's biggest hit, the aformentioned "Frankenstein". Be warned: this album sounds VERY different from the White Trash big band and Derringer-driven Edgar Winter Group offerings. It is much more refined and, I think, creative than later recording would prove to be. Well worth the download for EW fans who have not heard it. Highly recommended!

An amazing musician...

He's so underated. Some really epic jazz suites here. You can hear some of his Frankenstein riffs in the full version of "Hung Up". Also check out his sax and keyboard playing on Johnny Winters "Second Winter". One of the all time greats. : >

Startling debut!

Nothing like starting your career with a hard left turn - prior to this album Edgar was really only known for his work as a sideman with his brother Johnny, and Tobacco Road, a feature for Edgar in Johnny’s live show, is the only track here that represents that association. The rest of the material, co-written by Edgar with Johnny, was recorded with New York studio musicians, and it shows a startlingly original songwriting and vocal style that Edgar never really revisited.

The songwriting is kind of overblown in a youthful “look what I can do” manner, but despite that there are some shockingly sophisticated twist and turns, as well as ample opportunities for Edgar to show off his endless vocal range and immense alto saxophone and keyboard skills.

Edgar might have become one of the musical heavyweights of the era if he had continued to evolve in the direction he began here - not that what he did subsequently was bad by any means, but in a purely musical sense he never really delivered on the initial promise of this album.

Biography

Born: December 28, 1946 in Beaumont, TX

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Although he's often skirted the edges of blues music, at heart, saxophonist, keyboardist and composer Edgar Winter is a blues musician. Raised in Beaumont, TX, the younger brother of ukulele player and guitarist Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter has always pushed himself in new directions, synthesizing the rock, blues and jazz melodies he hears in his head. As a consequence, his fan base may not be what it could have been, had he made a conscious effort -- like his brother Johnny -- to stay in a blues-rock...
