Like Hugh Masekela’s other records on Blue Thumb, this is a totally great bit of Afro funk, with a good hard groove filled with tight jazz playing, and some nice choppy rhythm that feels like it belongs on a Fela record. Great stuff played by his tight little Hedzoleh Soundz group, with the cuts “Kaa Ye Oya”, “Patience”, “When”, “Adade”, and “Languta”.
