Ambiance - (Gida-Gida) Tight and Tidy

High Jazz

Regular price $45.00

Sublime private spiritual jazz-funk/fusion album, now hard to find.
Finally available again as a fully licensed and remastered reissue complete with original artwork.  

Led by saxophonist Daoud Abubakar Balew who studied formal classical music and received instruction from Frank Mitchell (Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers) and Jackie McLean (Blue Note records), Ambiance incorporates Brazilian and Latin flavours with a righteous and soulful Afrocentric jazz edge.
This amazing and sought after LP beautifully starts with the haunting "The Clavicle" sampled by MF Doom on the Special Herbs beat series and contains other gems like the so fresh call for celebration 'Fiesta' composed by Gato Barbieri, the insane spiritual jazz fusion track 'Gida-Gida' and the killer modern soul cut 'There Is A Love' featuring the beautiful voice of Syreeta wright.

Magnificent in its entirety - all killer, no filler.
