Sabu Martinez :: Afro Temple (1973)

His final effort as a bandleader, Afro-Cuban conguero wizard Sabu Martinez cemented his legacy with 1973's Afro Temple. Recorded in Sweden and released six years before his death, the album is a swirling, spiritual, and psychedelic bouillabaisse of sound riffing on, and augmenting, many of the sonic traditions Martinez had worked throughout his career.

At times haunting, the polyrhythmic and propulsive title track immediately locks into a humid, humid groove -- one the group relentlessly ride . . .
