Brother Ah's World Music Ensemble

BROTHER AH'S WORLD MUSIC ENSEMBLE:

Celebration!

Brother Ah (Robert Northern), the most sought-after jazz French hornist of the '60s, gave up his horn in the early '70s to explore his vision of merging traditional music from all continents. Celebration! is the culmination of his group's 20-year spiritual journey: gorgeous all-acoustic arrangements of hand-carved African flutes, Afro-Caribbean percussion, woodwinds, guitar and koto. Their delicate beauty is captured with amazing transparency and detail. Soundstage so precise, it's speaker designer Von Schweikert's favorite imaging test disc. A pristine glimpse of the group that pioneered 'world' music before the name exist. (#01632)
