New artist for me - only recently discovered - some great tracks - overall feel is inviting - bit disappointed that their version of "Breezin" by George Benson isn't on the album. Good Album - highly recommended

A good compilation album should leave the listener wanting more. Given that premise, this album succeeds quite nicely, and in the process documents the evolution of saxophonist James Plunky Branch's band (Juju, and later Oneness of Juju) from its beginnings as a jazz combo with strong African influences, to it's transition to a jazz-funk combo, and later a funk combo. The album also features some of the side projects that Plunky and other members of the band were involved with in the 1970s. The packaging is wonderful, including very complete liner notes that detail the band's history, and a reasonably complete discography of the band (both during the period covered by this release, and subsequent recordings by this band). As a document of a period when a noticeable subset of jazz musicians were willing to experiment with African and funk influences, and as a document of the struggles of independent artists to get their progressive and Afro-centric message across to a wider audience, this is invaluable. The music should also serve as a reminder that some of the more recent trends in jazz, such as acid jazz and jazz-rap, have their origins in the various fusions of jazz, funk, world music, and progressive and radical politics of the 1960s and 1970s. This is not to be missed by open-minded listeners who like their jazz funky and their funk jazzy. Get this, and then hope that Strut will continue to reissue the rest of their back catalog.

Multi Saxophonist,composer and band leader J. Punky Branch is from my hometown of Richmond,Va. Now that I've gotten that out allow me to say that he is one of the most creative artist you could ever experience. An early artist for the Strata-East label and a friend and confidant of both Ornette Coleman and Sun Ra as well as a co founder of the Richmond Jazz Society,this compilation of 25 tracks of heavy avante garde,african influenced rhythms,Be Bop Jazz,Avante Garde Jazz,Soul and Hip Hop featuring an ensemble of creative musicians ranging from Ghanian percussionist Asante ,guitarist Ras Mel Glover,brother Muzi Branch on Bass and the fine vocals of Lady Eke Ete and many others throught the years, these tracks are drawn from the very creative years of 1970-82 during the formation of the Black Fire recording studio where many of these inspirational tracks were culled from. Legendary tracks featured are "Space Jungle Love", "Freedom Fighters Suite" "Every Way But Loose","Nairobi","African Rhythms II" the sound production on the remastering is supreme and the booklet with rare photo's gives an insight into the culture and sound of one of Richmond,Va greatest treasures. An international artist Plunky has traveled to Europe,Africa and throught the continental U.S as well as the West indies(most recently Cuba where he produced a film on the influence of African Rhythms) displaying and showcasing his brand of African Rhythms and Funk. This collection is a must have for that grooveseeker,the supersonic sound of Plunky and The Oneness of JuJu...legendary!.
