Album Review

El’zabar, Kahil Ritual Trio – “Ancestors Are Amongst Us, The” – [Katalyst Entertainment]

Cousin Mary   2/28/2011   CD, Jazz

This 1987 recording is of the original Ritual Trio with El’Zabar on percussion, Lester Bowie on trumpet, and Malachi Favors on bass – we should rejoice that it was finally released in 2010. El’Zabar’s study and interest in African music is evident, and those African ancestors no doubt give the recording its title.

Stunning interweaving conversation among the three musicians – very, very cool. Track 7 will delight fans of thumb piano.

Lean, vibrant, engaging.
