'Come Clean' by Jeru The Damaja (DJ Premiere production) was & still is an absolute staple track; I used to wonder over where the main sounds came from. With an African/Conga feel, but totally Alien & unique, its still one of the most unusual & brilliant Hip-Hop tracks of all time. Finally, 23 years later, & thanks to Discogs I tracked the source, & it's right here (B5 Infinity). But forget that for a moment; This is one mother of a heavy Jazz LP. Abstract, haunting & funky as hell. The drums & percussion from Manne & Brian Moffatt come into their own, un-restricted & raw. There's revered Jazz LP's doing the rounds for pricey sums, with heavy weight names & session musicians behind them, but so often filled out with fluff between the more interesting tracks. None so here, with a deep downtempo vibe, spiritual atmos, interjections of darker moments/electronics and some serious bass/percussion workouts, underpinning shrill horns of John Gross & Gary Barone. Mind-blower.
