5.0 out of 5 stars Loose, sprawling groove 19 Aug 2006
By Mr Kit
Format:Audio CD
Florid funk heavy on the horns and percussion and light on the guitars, with all the frills the title suggests. Rather than locked grooves a loose, party/church atmosphere and style dominate, with lots of chanting and shouts and lyrics about positivity and whatnot. Has the sense of vibrant freedom methodical funk often lacks, not to mention some amazing elasticated bass playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars killler afro funk jazz 25 Aug 2012
By freedom glider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"A landmark of Afro-centric jazz in the 70s - and the first album by this famous underground collective! Oneness of Juju were a Washington DC-based group that grew out of the ashes of the Juju avant jazz ensemble - formed in the culturally rich African-American community of DC in the 70s, with spiritual and political aspirations that stretched far beyond the average funky combo. This first album is a masterful blend of percussion, jazz, and a slight bit of funk - alternating vocal tracks with harder-hitting jazz instrumentals, all held together under the leadership of sax player Plunky Nakabinde. The album's one of the greatest independent soul jazz albums of the 70s - and it's filled with great tracks, such as the breakbeat classic "African Rhythms" and "Liberation Dues". Other titles include "Kazi", "Funky Wood", "Don't Give Up", "Poo Too", and "Incognito"." -themightyDustyGroove
1.0 out of 5 stars The music is excellent. However 14 Aug 2014
By Walter F. Griffiths - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The music is excellent. However, I have to take issue with the way the album is tracked. On several occasions there are tracks that should move directly into the next. In this MP3 Album there are abrupt pauses between every track, completely destroying any continuity. The effect is jarring and makes musical nonsense. This is unacceptable for any music lover. If there was a way for me to get my money back from the digital store, I would gladly use the credit towards the CD or Vinyl format of this great album.
