We have a very special album of the week, the The Magical Light of Saba (Honest Jon’s) from a true Rasta band led by experimental saxophonist Cedric Im Brooks. He and his musicians introduced African percussion and instrumentation to Jamaica. His days in Philadelphia with Sun Ra can be heard in his approach as can his fascination with Ethiopian music. Yet all the while the rasta rythms and the nyabinghi drumming are never far away.
Seriously one of the best reggae albums ever made.
