Catalog # 1001 or RR 42697

1. Nubian Queen
2. Infinity

Khan Jamal Vibes,marimba.
Bernard Sammul Piano
Byard Lancaster Alto Sax, flutes
Clifton Burton Harmonica
Dwight James Drums
Omar Hill African percussion, conga

Sunny Murray Drums on track 2

Although Khan Jamal is an advanced improviser, the sound of his vibes always gives his music a somewhat mellow and accessible air, even when he is at his most adventurous. This Stash LP (three of the five selections have been reissued on the CD Don't Take No) matches Jamal with altoist Byard Lancaster (doubling on flute), a Philadelphia-based rhythm section and, on "Infinity" (which dates from 1984), a group that includes Clifton Burton on harmonica and the legendary free drummer Sunny Murray. Jamal contributed four of the five songs, while pianist Bernard Sammul brought in a cooking "The Angry Young Man." Excellent and generally overlooked music.

Hi Pier and all at MFS...
This, for me is an album that i bought for two tracks...
Track 1 Nubian Queen
and Track 4 The Known Unknown.
Give it a try and I hope you like it!
Tracks 1,3,4,5 recorded Dec 1982 .
Track 2 recorded Mar 84.
This is from a "dodgey" possible bootleg CD I got from ebay.
All the best,

The link is named ''Intensity'' but contains the ''Infinity'' LP...it's for the sheriffs....
