This 1985 album by The Afro-Asian Music Ensemble, led by Chinese-American jazz saxophonist Fred Houn, is a group of four Asian Americans and five Afro-Americans, and according to the description, Houn According to the description, Houn has a deep knowledge of Afro-American culture, and this is on full display on this album. The three-part suite A1, with its dramatic development of a thick brass ensemble interspersed with poetry readings, is a spiritual sublimation of old jazz and blues elements, as if to create a spectacular view of the history of black music. The entire album is superb. Highly recommended.A1: Tomorrow is Now! -Suite
