Late seventies afro-beat / afro-funk fusing caribbean sounds from Nigerian sax player Peter King on Secret Stash! Raw emotion delivered via relentless groove and unique melodies.  

Born in Enugu, Nigeria in 1938 King eventually moved to London to study at Trinity School of Music, the same institution Fela Kuti and Ebo Taylor attended. It was in London that King would master jazz and R&B. In the mid-sixties his band, The African Messengers, was hired as the backing band during European tours by The Four Tops, The Temptations, and Diana Ross.
