An extremely rare album such as Alkebu-Lan should not be overlooked just because of it’s limited print and lack of exposure; this double album is 90 minutes of some of the best Avant-Garde Jazz ever recorded. .. 


Cult Spiritual / political free Jazz concert recorded in 1971 at The East, Brooklyn, NY. 
Features an almost perfect cast of Spiritual Jazz musicians : Gary Bartz, Carlos Garnett, Stanley Cowell, Andy Bey… Cult Strata-East records release! 

Sleeve has light ring wear and some moderate scuffings on edges. Records have hairlines but play great, with occasional surface noise on quiet parts…. 

Hyper-afro spiritual jazz teetering between avant-garde inventiveness and free jazz madness. The ensemble is lead by James Mtume, a percussionist who during this period was playing regularly with with Miles Davis, Buddy Terry, Sonny Rollins, Pharoah Sanders and others. He released two albums as a leader. Both are great representations of 1970s New York free jazz, and among the best displaying the possibilities of larger ensembles. ‘Alkebu-Lan: Land Of The Blacks’ was recorded at The East, a radical venue in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, remembered for the Pharoah Sanders album bearing its name, and notable for not allowing white people to pass its doors. …
