Release Date:03/16/2018;Notes:For a label that wasn't around long, Strata East achieved the same sort of label recognition that Impulse! Or Blue Note managed to build. In other words, you knew what you were getting when you bought a record on the label, even if you didn't know the names on the outside of the cover. This is no exception. Who is Shamek Farrah? Who knows? Who cares? It's the music that's important. This is the standard spiritually intense new jazz one learns to expect from the label, soaked in some Eastern influences but always with it's ear to the street. Musicians took their roles as leaders and spokesmen very seriously back then. This very adult statement from a group of very serious men is no exception. However, what might be an average, forgettable session is rescued by the propulsive engine of Milton Suggs' bass. He adds the fire and the drive that keeps things interesting and prevents the music from wandering into a circular spiritual morass. For fans of the sound or the label, this can be heartily recommended.;Track List:1. Meterologicly Tuned;2. Watch What Happens Now;3. Umoja Suite;4. First Impressions;Special Attributes:180 GRAM VINYL
