Killer! Seminal and much sought after Afro Jazz session recorded in Paris in 1979 featuring Senegalese percussionist Cheikh Tidian, produced by Jean-Paul Rodrigue for his cult Freelance label. The session features saxophone player Jo Maka - leader of the Celestial Communication Orchestra but perhaps best known for his work with Angolan singer Bonga - and regular Steve Lacy collaborator Bobby Few, in a Parisian answer to Black Jazz and Strata East. A Brilliant leftfield spiritual jazz release from the golden era.
"A fantastic bit of spiritual soul jazz – sounding very much like some of the best work on Strata East from the 70s, but recorded in Paris with a richly cross-cultural sound! Chiekh Tidiane Fall plays a host of percussion instruments, while Bobby Few adds in piano, and Jo Maka riffs on some fantastic soprano sax – long, lean open lines that inflect the tunes with plenty of soul, and which dance along nicely in the surprising African-tinged rhythms that come from Few's piano! The cuts are all long and modal, with bits of Afro Jazz thrown in, and there's a great groove to most of the record. Andrea Shockley sings a warm spiritual vocal on the cut "Black Snow", and other titles include "Diom Futa", "Sunflowers", and "Dream Drums" Dustygroove
