    Seriously deep, deep Afrocentric jazz meets the east from Brooklyn born Malik and his group of likeminded radical musicians. HEAVY.
    Wicked new album from Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids with some serious cosmic / afro jazz vibes. Produced by Malcolm Catto of The Heliocentrics, the album is one of the deepest, richest works yet from a band reaching their highest creative peak since the early ’70s.
    Conceptual musical w/spoken word and some groovy 70s vibes. Pretty sure Cannonball's last recording before he died.

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy was not recorded at that Chicago venue, but instead at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. (The ruse was a favor to the club owner.) The hollering audience was comprised of invited guests...
