A seminal bit of funky Afrojazz from the DC scene of the 70s! The album features work by percussionist Okyerema Asante, and also includes sax work by Plunky Nakabinde – best known as the leader of the group Oneness Of Juju. Plunky's influence can really be felt strongly on the set – and the record has much of the sound of the first two Oneness albums, which were also issued on Black Fire. Lots of funky fusion, with a few really nice drumbreaks, and an excellent spiritual vibe throughout the entire set! Includes the tracks "Asante Sana", "Sabi", "Play A Sweet Rhythm On Them Drums", and "Never Fly Away From The Funk".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Interaction
Atlantic (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A magnificent set from the team of Art Farmer and Jim Hall – one of those rare pairings in jazz that somehow comes off sounding even way better than the sum of its parts – and that's saying a lot, given that the parts here are already pretty darn great! Farmer's flugelhorn and Hall's ... CD
