Doc Severinsen - I wanna be with you

Continuing my musical mission. This time with some funky soul-jazz from the old jazzer Doc Severinsen. I can't say I know much about him, or his back catalogue. This is from his 1976 LP - Night Journey and the track is 'I wanna be with you'.
I think he share his story with some other old school jazz players, I'm thinking of Webster Lewis, Benny Golson etc., going from straight jazz to more contemporary sounds in the seventies. I can recall when speaking with some hardcore jazz-dudes (in their sixties), and they were moaning about their favourite artists starting to play disco and other stuff. This don't dissapoint me though.
