Get ready to have the lid blown off your house and mind with this essential live Horace Tapscott record. The beauty of his music is he reached the out-limits of jazz, he explored like Coltrane, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Pharoah, Ra et al but always his tunes were of places and people as he brings in the Pan-African Peoples Arkestra who provide the African-rhythms to match Tapscott's freewheeling avant-garde spiritual jazz.
180g audiophile double vinyl reissue of this superb rare, deep and
spiritual jazz opus album, recorded at the Immanuel United Church
of Christ, Los Angeles, in 1979, with re-mastering by Cicely Baston
at Alchemy/Air Mastering
The music of Horace Tapscott and The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra is
part Sun Ra Arkestra, part John Coltrane, part Art Ensemble of Chicago.
This groundbreaking and monumental album explores the multi-faceted
deep and spiritual jazz of Tapscott - Afro-centric rhythms, hypnotic bass lines,
Tapscott's stabbing modal piano playing and stunning flute and horn arrangements.
"The Pan-Afrikan Peoples Arkestra - Live at I.U.C.C." is a true high point in the
cannon of great independent underground jazz music recorded during this era
