Kamal Abdul-Alim - Dance

Here is a couple great soul jazz gems in "Brotherhood" and "Dance" from trumpeter Kamal Abdul Alim. These funky tracks are featured on the Alim's hard-to-find 1983 album Dance, which features some jazz heavy weights including James Spaulding (Alto & Flute), Bobby Watson (Alto & Soprano), Ron Burton (Piano), and Idris Muhammad (Drums). The remainder of the line-up is rounded out by some lesser known, yet solid musicians that include Sabu Adeyola (Bass), Abdul Wali (Guitar ), and Abdus Saboor (Percussion). The entire record is solid from start to finish, staying with an overall soulful jazz groove that blends nicely with some of the albums more spiritual moments. Overall, this is an amazing record that I highly recommend keeping an eye out for. Enjoy!
