RESTOCKED: 2-CD collection of the ex-leader of legendary Afro-spiritual/deep funk/free jazz group from 1970s Ohio (later in SF), The Pyramids. Their music is one of the most deep attempts by African-Americans, deep sounds like Strata-East, aggressive performances like Tribe or Black Jazz, every free jazz/funk collectors should agree on it. Featuring 10 pieces of The Pyramids taken from their 3 albums and unreleased (!) recordings (included first live recording in Holland!). Notably The Pyramids had even stayed in African countries like Morocco, Ghana, Kenya & Ethiopia and studied real African culture & music there in the early 1970s. Do you know other African-American jazz musicians who had done such a road trip in early 1970?
"recordings range from the collective’s early 70s free-pulse vamping to the pyramids mid-70s snaking horn-lines (including alternate versions of a few pieces from the “birth speed merging” suite reissued on its own by em last year) finally to idris’ quartet/ensemble recordings from the late 70s through the present day. A superb set of sun-ra lineage free jazz..." Mimaroglu
