About this item

This Japanese CD collection brings together all the tracks from Philip Cohran's thrilling Zulu label 45s. While some of his and the Artistic Heritage Ensemble album tracks can be a bit sprawling, the limitations of the 7" format seems to have focused the Chicago jazz group's minds on creating some succinct but still impressive pieces. From the tribal Afro-jazz opener "The African Look", via the wickedly funky extended thumb-piano jam on "Loud Mouth" and Egyptian melodies on "El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz", the distillation of the AHE sound is absolutely fantastic.
