Extremely rare but important release from the little known but highly respected Abdul-Malik. Abdul-Malik was one of the main Jazz musicians in New York in the 1960s to bring middle-eastern sounds and instrumentation into jazz. Radical stuff, very much ahead of its time. An essential album for anyone interest in how eastern sounds fused with jazz at this time - ranks alongside Yusef Lateef, John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders.
