Incredible 1976 LP from South African jazz musician Abdullah Ibrahim aka Dollar Brand with his The Children Of Africa LP.  Workings as a trio with Abdullah on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums, the LP is steeped in themes of Africa with deeply moving moments of deep, meditative musicianship, occasionally reduced to just a plucked bass and tickling of drum.  The highlight is surely the extended, spiritual 'Ishmael', where Ibrahim also picks up soprano sax and sings, whilst 'Yukio-Khalifa' and the more wistful 'The Dream' focus more on the dynamic pairing of piano and bass.  Beautiful and future-proof late night listens.  (W-German edition // Vinyl & Sleeve VG+++).
