Format: Audio CD
Randy Weston has spent over 50 years connecting the dots between jazz and its African source material. Now in his 80th year he's returned to where he began - as pianist in a jazz trio. However, he's maintaining his anthropoligical view by linking up with a percussionist using African instrumentation, instead of a traditional drummer, something that lifts thematerial on up.

The best piece of the lot is the opening number, "Blue Moon" which simply sparkles. But there are plenty of other highlights with the delicate "The Healers" and the funky "Portrait Of Frank Edward Weston" running it close.

Recorded in Paris, nov. 1969 and originally issued on 2 LPs. Two congas are featured (one of whom is Little Niles himself) with Henri Texier (b) and Art Taylor (d). The congas are brilliantly integrated into the music, which is really exciting at times. Randy had been away from the recording studios for 3 years and obviously relished the opportunity. The piano style reminds me of Duke Ellington more than any other pianist. Recommended to all but the conga-averse. (You might find an MP3 version...)
