After moving to New York in the 1960s, American bassist Cecil McBee played with Miles Davis, Andrew Hill, Sam Rivers, Wayne Shorter, and many others, and was a dominant presence on countless sessions. McBee released his first leader album on Strata-East in 1974. The album features Jimmy Hopps (ds), Onaje Allen Gumbs (p), Lawrence Killan (per), DeeDee Bridgewater (vo), George Adams (ts, ss), and a total of 11 other musicians. The imaginative A1 with two bass solos overdubbed, and B1 with a gentle Latin beat, soaring trumpet and saxophone solos, and bright piano lightly swaying, are just a few of the gems of black spiritual jazz that pays homage to the soul and culture of Africa, and longing for oneness with the universe. This is a superb album that is loved throughout the ages.

A1: From Within

B1: Mutima
B2: a Feeling
B3: Tulsa Black
