5.0 out of 5 stars gutsy and intriquingly occultic, July 23, 2009
Excellent read.Great insight.No-one seems to actually understand the truth of alchemy, like most of medaevil, understanding of the scientific was fictional, but as a metaphor of the human inner quest to higher planes; it was a parallel of sorts. Alchemy does still seem to analogise even now what science can't explain in the universe, as if the the true truths of it are still ultimately subjective. This, against the mundane curiousity of a simple journalist. Beautifully written besides.

4.0 out of 5 stars get it for one long spell-binding classic track, October 30, 2008
'If Only We Knew' the first track is so good even people not particularly into jazz understand and love it because it's so eloquently moving. The other tracks don't hit the spot. But 'If Only We Knew' is a track that has something almost universal about it and you'll want to have it to keep returning to it from time to time always? check it out because it's one of those jazz standards that's up there

5.0 out of 5 stars a very joyous and sound album, October 30, 2008
This review is from: Arrival (Audio CD)
A tribute to Pharoah Saunders, mostly his tunes, and nothing below par of what the Pharoah might have put out in collaboration with Howard Johnson and this band himself. There is an energised serenity to this album and nothing sugary about it. It doesn't get into abstract jazz (as pharoah saunders can...) nor space out in any commercialised way. Track 7 just rocks in an almost ecstatic way. If you love jazz or Pharoah Saunders do check this one out -it's a beautiful album to have in your collection

5.0 out of 5 stars kulu se mama one of most profound jazz pieces, October 29, 2008
This review is from: Kulu Se Mama (Audio CD)
i don't truly get jazz that is too abstact, as i find coltrane can be, but kulu se mama abstacts AND holds together with a repeating melodic theme that intensifies throughout the track. It is a homage and summoning of the power in nature and of the soul; this piece of music SUMMONS a profound invocation to the point of being almost reverentially occultic, it could be one of the deepest things in jazz so do check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars an underground gem- king stitt is pure gold, October 1, 2008
This review is from: Reggae Fire Beat (Audio CD)
i don't get why there are no other reviews if he's that obscure because when i play to 'Dance Beat' to people not particularly into reggae-their eyes light up- it really is eiree, kicking and very cool. King Stitt only recorded about 30 songs under Coxone label(maybe just too ogly-looking to market? Despite having a big following as a dj in jamaica in the 70's.) Maybe artists with a stigma to overcome have to be double good (see Ian Dury) whatever reason, Stitt is the buisness and double-deep. His voice gets right into your bones, great tunes and rhythmns. It may be too heavy reggae because it's far from a commercial taste but dat's no problem- everyone loves 'Dance beat',just listen because of that !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars thr heptones-leroy sissles-a lost to fame softer secretive bob marley, August 8, 2008
the heptones- thee heptone of the heptones was Leroy Sibbles-not so out front as Bob Marley,the Maytals, but softer,more intimate also he crapped out on his band famous because deeper music more moonlit than sunlit of commercialism.Check out what he said
