Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars Second opus from this fairly long-living NYC septet that released it with more success than their eponymous debut album. Recorded in Hendrix' Electric Ladyland studio over the 71/72 winter, it had a top 40 single to help it as well, called Get It All. Coming with moonlit Mandrill face as front artwork, and superb cosmic representation of the group on the back cover, it also comes with a cosmic black nativity artwork inside.

Aside this superb Git It All hit-track, there are some incredible tracks on Is, like Ape Is High (with its infective horn section), the outstanding Children Of The Sun (with its extra-long instrumental intro), the amazing Lord Of The Golden Baboon with its great constant evolution (if that's not prog, then I don't know what is), the cello then flute-driven Central Park (excellent arrangements), the jungle-escaped jazz-rock Kofijahm (outstanding percussion break), the joyous but guitar-heavy Here Today, Gone Tomorrow and the great finale Sun Must Go Down. You've never haerd an afro-American album like this one before and there haven't been many like these since.

Other tracks take on more Latino beats like the samba/Santana-esque Cohelo (and its lovely flute solo), while other are more soul-ish, like Refuse To Smile, the weirdest being this two-kids debate interrupted by some cosmic spirit called Universal Rhythm (sounding like Moody Blues and completely cheesy, not made for repetitive listening), but these are somewhat lesser tracks in an otherwise filled with nuggets album.

The Collectables Records label that reissues these Mandrill albums certainly do a superb job, and with such albums as Mandrill Is, or Cymande's debut album, they are unearthing some real gems in progressive ethnic music of the early 70's that didn't have War or Osibisa's chance. RUN FOR IT !!!!!

4 stars Second album of possibly most progressive funk band from early 70-s. With new bassist, band recorded that album with more jazz-rock elements, including some heavy guitar riffing. Still heavily based on funk, the album includes r'n'b, jazz-rock and Latin jazz almost in equal proportions. Plus some blues and psychedelia.

Compositions varies from Santana-like Latin percussion filled nice sambas, to heavy Brooklyn funk, to early jazz-rock guitar -led pieces. But main ingredient is Wilson brothers brass trio, all other sounds are just turning around.

Differently from other more straightforward funk bands of their time, Mandrill music is build far not only around rhythm. Nice melodies, some experimental (to time) sounds and constructions. Not everything goes successfully there: some speaking vocals or lightweight danceable rhythms don't add too much for band's mix.

But in whole, I believe this album is really interesting and successful evidence of progressive funk searches in early 70-s.
