Wally Richarson came out of a rhythm and blues,soul jazz and pop experience. Because of this background and music reading ability, he was very active as an all around studio guitarist in the late 50's/60's/70's. He recorded a good cult album of psychedelic jazz funk which is now a collectors item. "Soul Guru" came out in 1969 on Prestige Records in New Jersey. It has all kinds of stuff on it: Soul, funk, jazz, and an instrumental covers of a hit from the day (Mammas and the Papas "Monday, Monday").
