Magic Ritual. Recorded at Sound Ideas, New York, NY 01151976. Arranger: Harry Whitaker. It features understated riffing from Azar Lawrence, David Schnitter, and the eternally-underrated Woody Shaw. Anchoring the rhythm is stalwart bassist Buster Williams with Howard King on drums and James Mtume on percussion. While the first side of this album straddles a line between between mellow funk and spaced-out soul jazz and is a bit long-winded at 23 minutes, the second and shorter side Magic Ritual is a more aggressive, agitated piece of Afrocentric celebration.
