Mwandishi? Crossings? Love, Love!! Yes! Pepo Mtoto Julian Priester's album sounds REALLY GOOD on this CD release. ANYBODY who has collected Mwandishi, Crossings or Sextant MUST** MUST hear "Love, Love"!! You get Priester's visionary take during this all too short electronic/acoustic era of post jazz. A sideman in Herbie Hancock's ground breaking, mind blowing "Sextet", Priester was one of three horn players with the Hancock group MOST DIRECTLY DESCENDANT FROM MILES DAVIS. After Miles, but before the Super Funk of the Headhunters is the momentary supernova flash that "Love,Love" is a part of. This work is one of the rare few venturing into worlds of non-commercial, pure exploration music of the time. In "Love, Love" you get Patrick Gleeson's otherworldly Emu sythesized orchestration and colorations, Hadley Caliman's "off center" reed playing (feeling very much like Bennie Maupin... are you sure it's not Bennie?) and of course, Priester's inspired, trimphant moments of clarity, proclomation and arrivial. Add a few other nice suprises, among which are Bill Conner's extended guitar solo, Eric Gravett's drumming, and the spirited piano of Umbra Zindiko. On "Love,Love", Pepo Mtoto lays back when it's grooving, absorbs and focuses the energy at the point of meltdown, then climbs upon and stands shining atop a glorious cachophony of sound and wonder. "Love, Love" is rare and wonderful. Listen to the samples (and of the referenced works, too!)

Wow. Just wow. I'm a huge fan of Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi-era band, and yet I never knew this album existed until a few weeks ago! It's essentially an Mwandishi album without Herbie Hancock, and -- dare I say it? -- in some ways it's better than "Crossings" or "Sextant." If you love those thrilling days of the early Seventies when jazz fusion was groundbreaking and challenging, if you love "Bitches Brew" and early Weather Report, and especially if you're a fan of Mwandishi, this album will rocket you straight to heaven. Somebody please tell me there's more music out there like this!

Julian Priester had released a number of recordings as a leader over the years in acoustic settings, along with
an extended stay in famed bandleader Sun Ra's ensemble, as well as playing in Herbie Hancock's controversial
"Mwandishi" band before he led and recorded his 1973 ECM electronic/cosmic lp "Love, Love". In the December
1974 issue of Canadian jazz magazine CODA (now gone), the cover story was about jazz trombonist/composer
Priester, which contained an extensive article and interview with him, in which he discussed the recent demise
of Hancock's "Mwandishi" band, to which he'd belonged for over three years. In the extended interview, Julian
also talked about where he wanted to go with his own music since "Mwandishi", along with the challenges and
problems with getting a major record label to release the recent music he had recorded on what would become
"Love, Love". He said, "I'm pretty much working with the same concept. Staying in San Francisco, playing with
alot of musicians, and taking my tape around to the record companies. I'm talking with Warner Bros., Columbia,
Fantasy-Prestige, Polydor...everyone seems interested, although it's too early to tell. I'm looking for a company
that is willing to invest in an artist, that will let the artist build and develop an audience. Maybe I'll get lucky or
something. I hope I get my record out, because then I'll be competing. I'll be one trombone out there against all
the trumpets and saxes. So...If you see my album, buy it. I want a whole lot of people to buy it." It did not take
long for Manfred Eicher, from ECM Records, to hear something special, indeed, with Priester's recording which he
acquired and later released in 1974.
