DIOM FUTA (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK
Spiritual afro-jazz sessions from the Parisian underground. Originally released in 1979 - now back on vinyl, remastered from the original master tapes.
Seminal and much sought after Afro Jazz session recorded in Paris in 1979 featuring Senegalese percussionist Cheikh Tidiane, produced by Jean-Paul Rodrigue for his cult Freelance label.
The session combines Afro-centric percussion, the lyrical saxophone of Jo Maka (The Celestial Communication Orchestra) and regular Albert Ayler and Steve Lacy collaborator Bobby Few in a Parisian answer to Black Jazz and Strata East.
