Gary Bartz NTU Troop - Juju Street Songs

Here is the jazz-funk masterpiece "Bertha Baptist" from Gary Bartz NTU Troop. This righteous funky gem is featured on the group's 1972 album Juju Street Songs. This is just one of the many great tracks included on this record, which also features standout cuts like "Black Maybe", "Teheran", the soulful spiritual jazz gem "I Wanna Be Were You Are", as well as the Afro-Caribbean influenced cut "Africans Unite". This recording was released on the heels of both Harlem Bush Music releases, and maintains a similar feel as those sessions. Overall, another powerful statement from a group that mastered the ability to record passionate spiritual music while maintaining a funky groove. Enjoy!
