CD version. Listening to the music of Al Doum & The Faryds is always like staying in the pristine nature of an exotic island, in the sacred harmony of a new organic society; imaging all brothers and sisters singing and dancing in the unity of the brotherhood. This is the message of love and joy that pervade this fourth album, Spirit Rejoin. Moving towards accents of jazz ancestry, the Faryds absorb and re-elaborate -- with remarkable insights -- disparate elements and influences of electric jazz of the '70s (Miles Davis, Dr. John) and spiritual jazz (Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry), marrying them with the forceful instances of Afro-free (Pyramids, Alkebu-Lan). The music celebrates a new collective soul, a dancing cathartic ritual with birds, plants, and all the animals, together in the circle of devotion. A journey in the total pranic breath.
