A seminal bit of funky Afrojazz from the DC scene of the 70s! The album features work by

percussionist Okyerema Asante, and also includes sax work by Plunky Nakabinde — best known as the

leader of the group Oneness Of Juju. Plunky’s influence can really be felt strongly on the set —

and the record has much of the sound of the first two Oneness albums, which were also issued on

Black Fire. Lots of funky fusion, with a few really nice drumbreaks, and an excellent spiritual

vibe throughout the entire set! Includes the tracks “Asante Sana”, “Sabi”, “Play A Sweet Rhythm On

Them Drums”, and “Never Fly Away From The Funk”.

Enjoy!
