Fiona's Comments

A song full of the joyous celebration so prevalent in much of the Impulse label's releases in the sixties, especially releases like Pharoah Sanders' which delved into African rhythms and instruments. But where many of those Impulse albums had an organic earthiness to them, Kajfes heads up to space, expanding into subtle electronics and something approaching the psychedelic-jazz of the seventies. This experimentation meets with ridiculous success. This entire album is outstanding.
