Brother Ah biography
North Carolina afro jazz artist, Brother Ah (playing trumpet, flute, jazz French horn.) made a name in the late sixties thanks to a clever and innovative use of non-western music. During this crucial period he started studies of Indian and Japanese music. In 1970 is written "Sound Awareness" (published 5 years later). It's an impressive medley of free jazz improvisations, hand percussions, eastern buzzing sitar drones and voices. This release features an obvious meditative, enchanting "cosmic" atmosphere. This afropsychedelica manifest is followed "Move Ever Onward" (originally released in 1975 privately) which carries on the same ritualistic, spiritual acclamations but with less emphasis on experimentations. An important material for those who enjoy East meets West musical experiences.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Ex Sun Ra band member Brother Ah back with an early 80's sensual, beautiful melodic and groovy album combining the best of buesy / jazz standards to classical "eastern" music, "exotic" acoustic instrumentations. "Motherless Child" is soul music, including a plaintive bluesy flavour sung by a powerful, melodic and tragic woman voice. The song is accompanied by an harp / flute duet. In "Sekou" , the traditional afro tendance of the band is more evident, featuring ethno percussions, funky bass lines. The title track expresses a the mellow fusion jazz side of the band, writting as a ballad with ravishing female vocals, afro grooves. Among their most accessible effort and not their best despite that is perfectly performed, with lot of passion and a good technical background. It's an important "world jazz" essay for collectors and could be a nice musical exploration for progressive fans. I'm almost sure that classic jazz fans would give 4 or 5 stars. According to me their best remain the freaked out "Sound Awareness" and the adventurous "Move ever Onward".
