Best of 2023

Horace Tapscott, Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra

Live at IUCC 6/24/79 (2CD)

Label: Nimbus West

Format: 2CD

Genre: Jazz



**333 copies, one-time pressing**  Volume 2 out of 11. This is the last recording with Jesse Sharps as the Bandleader before he left for the Army.. An incredible afternoon of music and a fitting “Departure” for a Jesse, a true pillar of the 70’s Arkestra. Macrame was originally released in 1979 on the IUCC 2LP, it is presented here, in a raw transfer of the master reel. Mykowski’s 1st Fifth is nothing but pure fire with those blistering solos by Sharps, Session, and a very special reading by Kamau Daaood.

The take of Stanley Cowell’s “Departure” is sure to wake the neighbors and drive away evil spirits, the Arkestra would never be the same.
