Yes!! It's as if the folks at Honest Jon's have unearthed a great lost Fela session, and for all intents and purposes, they have! Mr Big Mouth is a session written and led by trumpeter Tunde Williams, a mainstay in Fela's group for many years and one of the most distinctive voices in the horn section. The tracks were recorded in 1975, featuring a burning lineup of Afrika 70 that cut many seminal sides, and though they did see release in the mid 70s, this is one of the hardest to find recordings by the group. Both tracks roll along on the signature percolating Afrobeat groove, with rippling hornlines and call and response vocals elevating the proceedings to a new height: "Mr Big Mouth" and "The Beginning".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Incredible! This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks – similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified!
