Joe Chambers: The Almoravid LP
'Life Goes On Records present a reissue of Joe Chambers's The Almoravid, originally released in 1974. Terrific session just released on influential independent Muse.
A modal masterpiece verging on spiritual jazz with a series of excellent players: from Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on bass to Ray Mantilla on congas and percussion, through Harold Vick's distinctive flute and tenor sax.
The major voice on this record belongs to the traps of Joe Chambers. The enormous potency combined with complete authority and tonal clarity that Chambers brings to the drums has made him one of the more distinctive percussive voices in jazz.'
