one of the absolute references in spiritual jazz. orginally released on the strata-east cult label, and not properly re-issued yet, unlike other juju's records.

thanks, vesper!
this strata-east gem sure looks great. i've never heard of juju - they released more stuff back in the 70s?

vesper said...

Absolutely, they also used to be named Oneness of Juju and released some sort of afro-funk-free-jazz classics. Check out African Rhythms or Space Jungle Luv, or an excellent double-CD best-of comp. They actually still tour, new band members probably, but same leader, Plunky.

Is this a rip from the original vinyl (or is there even a vinyl reissue?)
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Vesper -
I put a link to here from my re-post of Shamek Farrah's "First Impressions" (part of the OIR series)
All the best,
Simon from Never Enough Rhodes

If it's spiritual jazz and it was released by Strata-East, there's a good chance it's going to brighten up my life, so thank you for sharing this.
