SECRET SEVEN Reviews for WORLDS & 7

From BASS PLAYER MAGAZINE 
Dave Sharp’s Secret Seven 
7 [Vortex Jazz 1969] 
Ann Arbor, Michigan doubler Dave Sharp stays sharp on this recorded debut of his band Secret Seven. He’s a serious groover, as the lilting Afrobeat “Africano” demonstrates, but the record’s diverse stylistic palette shows off a kaleidoscopic competency in a wide array of styles. The record’s lush production is a bonus, giving it an airiness and clarity that suits the at-times dense material. -Jonathan Herrera

Dave Sharp’s Secret Seven   
WORLDS [Vortex Jazz 1970] 
Each piece tenders a soul-stirring vista, featuring subtle hues, layered treatments, and a seamless integration of disparate styles and genres.  Sharp merges swampy New Orleans grooves with East Indian raga-like content, along with modern jazz statements and vocals that seemingly float above the variable metrics. He merges spry, Middle Eastern and North African applications, employing artists who perform on indigenous percussion and stringed-instruments. On "Eastern Flame," Sharp anchors a straight-four jazz-rock pulse via his pliant lines for a rather sultry oeuvre that is breezy yet forceful by design and tinted with mystical attributes, and wordless vocal chants. 
​-Glenn Astarita

From LIVE MAGAZINE DETROIT
Dave Sharp’s Secret Seven  
WORLDS [Vortex Jazz 1970] 
This is a Detroit based project by way of Africa, Asia and many other great cultures of the modern world. Michigan bassist/multi-instrumentalist Dave Sharp has created an album that is a celebration of jazz and improvisational music in all its wonderful forms. This is an amazing record and a true testament to, not only the quality of the Detroit artistic community, but the universality and power of music period! -Eric Harbadian

Dave Sharp’s Secret Seven   
WORLDS [Vortex Jazz 1970] 
The majestic "Mystery Blues, which Sharp describes, with eye-opening accuracy, as "A Charles Mingus/Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan influenced minor blues featuring two Detroit legends, Gary Schunk and GayeLynne McKinney (drums)." Even if Gohil's vocal sounds more like traditional verse, it's no less mysterious or evocative. Sharp's bass in "Sunrise" so easily keeps up with Igor Houwat's snakecharmer oud that it seems their notes tether them together. "Sunrise" blazes into an "Eastern Flame," which rises like the sun from the previous piece and like the sun burns hotter and brighter as the music raises its voice higher and higher. -Chris Slawecki
