Bones & Tones: Hip Percussive Afro-Jazz
This is a formidable group on paper. They do not let down on disk.
Eight originals grace this program. The two-mallet team of Haber and Smith, the rich-toned, in the pocket bass anchorage of Mr. Shahid and the vibrantly convincing Afro-elements from Abdou Mboup make for very lively listening (and certainly dancing if you feel the urge).
Bones and Tones brings to your speakers music every bit worthy of the reputations of the members. Get an earful and you'll be coming back for more! Highly recommended.
And happy birthday to Mr. Warren Smith!
