Congo Call

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I will soon be traveling to New Orleans for the first time therefore musically, I'm definitely in a "jazz" mindset. If anyone has any suggestions as to record shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs I should check out, please email me or leave a note in the comments section.

With all of that being said, let's end the week with the funky spiritual jazz gem "Congo Call" by the Prince Lasha Quintet featuring alto Saxophonist Sonny Simmons. This brilliant track was featured on the group's 1963 hard-to-find album The Cry!. Along with Sonny Simmons on alto, the recording features Gary Peacock on bass, Gene Stone on drums, and is led by Prince Lasha on flute. The entire album is amazing from start to finish, so if you ever come across the original LP, I highly recommend making the wise decision of snatching it up. Enjoy the long weekend!
