The Pyramid's First Album. "Lalibela" is an extended polyrhythmic spiritual-jazz jam, heavily steeped in righteous mid-70s Afrocentrism and ensemble collaboration. A 28 minute experimental acoustic dynamo that builds on a driving organic groove for a good 16 minutes before engaging into freakout mode- a burst of ecstatic "freeness" that never fails (nor is failed by) the groups' apparent devotion to tempo. Great stuff. Never too skronky. Led by saxophonist/composer Idris Ackamoor. More Roland Kirk + Moondog than Anthony Braxton, et al.
