Dark Tree Records is very pleased to announce you the release, under exclusive license from the Horace Tapscott family, of this previously unpublished studio recording. In January 1976, the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra recorded at Audiotronics Recording Studio in Covina, east of Los Angeles. Musicians assumed these tapes were lost, but they survived in Horace’s archive and a copy of some tracks in that of Nimbus West. Four pieces appear on this CD: Ancestral Echoes, the Eternal Egypt Suite, Sketches of Drunken Mary and Jo Annette.
It features Horace Tapscott leading the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra with Aubrey Hart, Adele Sebastian, Jesse Sharps, Gary Bias, Michael Session, Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq, James Andrews, Charles Chandler, Amos Delone, Steven Smith, Lester Robertson, Wendell C. Williams, Red Callender, Linda Hill, David Bryant, Marcus McLaurine, Ricky Simmons, Ishmael Balaka, Moises Obligacion and Kamau Daaood. Other possible participants: Herbert Callies, Dadisi Komolafe and Robert Watt. Includes a 16-page booklet with liner notes by Steven Isoardi, photos by Mark Weber and from the Horace Tapscott Archive.
