M'Boom



Quiet simply, this is something i never thought i'd ever see. Two full versions of Jihad es Mort and Onomatopoeia performed live by the best jazz percussion outfit of all time. The line-up for this ensemble is breathtaking. Max Roach, Roy Brooks, Freddie Waits, Joe Chambers, Warren Smith and Omar Clay. Even the shows intro and final credits are dynamite, with Warren Smith soloing on timpani, and Ellis Haizlip "laying it down". Recorded 17th November 1971, this is easily the greatest set of videos i've ever seen.

I would LOVE the audio. Absolutely Love it.

Have you SEEN the episode list? It's unbelievable. McCoy Tyner and Bill Withers on the same show, Esther Phillips and Andrew Hill on the same show. Pharaoh Sanders, Rufus Harley, it goes on and on. Soul, jazz, poetry and politics. Feb.25, 1971: Jayne Cortez and the New York Bass Violin Choir. Wow.
