DURING THE FUSION ERA, THIS ALBUM WAS A SPIRITUAL BLESSING FOR LARRY YOUNG(KHALID IBIN YASIN). THE MUSIC BY AND LARGE WAS SPONTANEOUS IMPROVISATION. THE MUSIC ON THIS ALBUM VARIES FROM MILD TEMPO SPIRITUALITY TO THE ALL-OUT UPTEMPO SPACEY AVANT-GARDE SPIRITUALITY. LARRY WAS GETTING SYNTHESIZER SOUNDS OUT OF THE HAMMOND B-3 ORGAN YEARS BEFORE SYNTHS BECAME COMMONPLACE. HIS TECHNIQUE WITH THE DRAWBARS IS WHAT CAUSED ARCHIE SHEPP TO REFER TO HIM AS THE JOHN COLTRANE OF THE ORGAN. THE MUSIC ON THIS ALBUM IS VERY POWERFUL AND HAS SOMEWHAT OF A HYPNOTIC EFFECT. PHAROAH SAUNDERS IS THE MYSTERY GUEST ARTIST. DIEDRE JOHNSON PLAYS VERY INSPIRED CELLO. THERE'S AN OLD SAYING "LET THE MUSIC SPEAK FOR ITSELF". I ENCOURAGE YOU TO PURCHASE THIS CD. YOU WILL THEN UNDERSTAND WHAT I HAVE MEEKLY TRIED TO PUT INTO WORDS CONCERNING THIS VERY EMOTIONAL MUSICAL RECORDING EVENT.

Wow--"Khalid of Space" alone is worth the five stars...an
utterly intense jazz-funk masterpiece. Like Mingus on acid...

There's a false idea floating around, promoted by squares like Ken Burns and Wynton Marsalis, that the 70s was a bad decade for jazz. Not so. This album is proof that jazz in the 70s was real, vital, and often very, very good. Take the very best jazz organ player ever and combine with funk and avant garde moves that evoke both electric Miles and the cosmic overtones of Sun Ra. Now weld that to a chassis hotwired from Malcolm Mooney era Can -- a straightfoward driving beat that owes more to James Brown than to Kenny Clarke or Max Roach. The fact that nobody seems really sure who the tenor player is -- could be Sonny Fortune, could be Pharaoh Sanders -- just makes the whole thing even cooler.

"Sunshine Fly Away" is entirely overlooked as part of the Larry Young canon. Stretching back to the Bitches' Brew sessions and endeavouring briefly further ahead I find the exuberance matchless, though the song does seem to get bogged down by a recondite soprano.

The first four minutes are viable enough to warrant this as an overlooked masterpiece of euphoric esoterica in jazz.
