About this item

After a quiet year for Invisible City Editions in 2018, the Canadian diggers storm into 2k19 with a sublime reissue of a private press spiritual jazz LP from D.C's Jeff Majors. Composed on harp, drum machines and synths, "For Us All (Yoka Boka)" follows a similarly transcendent path to Alice Coltrance's later compositions; no surprise since Majors was a student at her Ashram, as well as playing in Brother Ah's band. But where Coltrane opted for the chanted mantra, Majors enlists vocalist to experiment with standard songs, here The Beatles' "Let It Be" and the Gershwins' "Summertime". Set to a propulsive rhythm section of Linn drums and Moog bass, the sweet vocals and atmospheric harps create a unique and otherworldly feeling. Remastered and repressed for the 21st century, this ace Invisible Cities reissue comes with an information booklet and new artwork.
