KAMAL ABDUL ALIM - DANCE










Kamal Abdul Alim & The Brothers for Stash USA from 1983.

Kamal Abdul Alim - Trumpet ; James Spaulding - Alto & Flute ; Bobby Watson - Alto & Soprano ; Ron Burton - Piano ; Sabu Adeyola - Bass ; Idris Muhammad - Drums ; Abdul Wali - Guitar ; Abdus Saboor - Percussion.

Another first time out in blogland for this great set from Kamal and the Brothers.And what a band of brothers they were with Idris Muhammed holding down the rhythm section joined by ex Roland Kirk pianist Ron Burton and the Spaulding-Watson-Alim frontline horns.
"Brotherhood" was the thumpin' spinner way back when and made it onto a couple of comps however don't make the mistake of ignoring the rest of the lp as it's a complete cracker ranging from afro inspired jazz to some nifty modal styled tunes.

Bloody excellent, thanks. I recognize some tunes, "Al Nafs" for example, but I can't really figure where I've heard the melodies before.

I have been opening up to jazz recorded in the late 70's and 80's which I have never done before. Was always a bit wary of the period. But I am learning that there is some wonderful stuff out there from then. Thanks for this, looks good!
