John Stubblefield - Bushman Song (1986)


Smooth, funky, South American- and African-flavored fusion led by saxophonist John Stubblefield. Today I have this thing that I think is called a day off -- I know, the fuck is that? -- and I guess it means that I'll be sitting on my ass, watching Judge Judy with my lady, getting high, and listening to jazz, new age, and black metal.

Track listing:
1. Bushman Song (Electric Version)
2. Serenade to the Mother Land
3. Some Things Never Change
4. Mwé Malad O
5. Loss of a Moment
6. East Side - West Side
7. Calypso Rose
8. Bushman Song (Acoustic Version)

  2. Indeed, RIP Geri Allen. One of the most nuanced pianists ever, to these ears. Hearty thanks for the post.
