"1971-2004". 2CD collection of the ex-leader of legendary deep & spiritual afro-jazz group from early '70s Ohio (later in San Francisco), THE PYRAMIDS. Their music is one of the most exotic attempts by African-Americans, heavy & free sounds like Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Early '70s Miles, Strata-East, aggressive performances like Oneness of Ju Ju, Albert Ayler, John Coltrane...but in their original form. Feat. 12 pieces of THE PYRAMIDS taken from their three studio albums and unreleased recordings (includes their first live recording in Holland!). Notably THE PYRAMIDS had ever stayed some African countries incl. Morroco, Ghana, Kenya & Ethiopia and studied real African culture & music there in early 1970s. Do you know other African-American JAZZ musicians who had done such a road trip in early 1970s?? Also this 2CD set featured a never heard before pre-PYRAMIDS recording in Pharoah Sanders & Strata East-ish style as THE COLLECTIVE, and 4 pieces from late 1970s to receny 2000s recordings as Idris Ackamoor Quartet/Ensemble. *Liner notes by Idris Ackamoor *English/Japanese text *Lots of scarce photos *36p thick booklet.
