Founded 40 years ago in 1972 Ã¢Â€ÂœOtherworldlyÃ¢Â€ÂÃ‚Â is the first PyramidsÃ¢Â€Â™ album in over 35 years. They released three albums before splitting up in 1977 Ã¢Â€Â“ albums that made them one of the most mysterious and legendary of all the spiritual cosmic jazz collectives of the early 70s. Reunion? Re-Incarnation!!!
Ã‚Â The new album contains 14 never before released tracks. The PyramidsÃ¢Â€Â™ signature sound is still percussion driven, no surprise with Nash and Speller being two of the most masterful percussionists on the planet. Another signature style of The Pyramids is the Ã¢Â€Âœtwo bassÃ¢Â€Â concept combining Kash KillionÃ¢Â€Â™s acoustic bass with electric bass by Thomas Ã¢Â€ÂœKimathi AsanteÃ¢Â€Â Williams. Ancient funk. Idris Ackamoor plays his alto sax in an absolutely astonishing way, sometimes simultaneously performing tap dance to create percussive rhythms, Ã¢Â€Âœsuggesting a post-be-bop PrinceÃ¢Â€Â as the NY Times called him.
