Afro Jazz Gigs

Since september 07, we received exclusive promos such as of the coming soon Birigwa album, Soul of Africa and Nigeria Special. So we try to dig tunes. Two months ago we posted "Porter Records digs Stark Reality", 'cause we also like to dig Stones Throw releases here, remember this post written one year ago. The track "Cold Heat" by Lil' Lavair & The Fabulous Jades (Cold Heat - Heavy Funk Rarities, Vol. 1: 1968-1974) is in fact a cover version of Buddy Miles Express's 69 Freedom Special (Electric Church). Here you'll listen the original tune Ye-Le-Wa by the heavy afro jazz band Brute Force peform two years before in 1970. One member of Brute Force appear on Birigwa, the original composer Stan Strickland on flute and tenor saxophone, and ex-Stark Reality member Phil Morrison on bass. It is the same Stan Strickland who's playing saxophone on Webster Lewis's Live At Club 7 released in 1971. We also try to diggin' Soul Of Africa album release near 1970 (I think). At this time Hal Singer play also with Manu Dibango and above all on the excellent album Paris Soul Food.
