The Positive Force & Ade Olatunji :: Oracy

Jazz comp aficionados might know The Positive Force with Ade Olatunji’s “The Afrikan In Winter” from Jazzman’s essential 2008 collection, Spiritual Jazz - Esoteric, Modal And Deep Jazz From The Underground 1968-77. But it's hardly the only remarkable composition on the hyper-rare private press album it was pulled from, 1977's Oracy. An invigorating blend of spiritual jazz, funk rhythms, and socially-conscious poetry, this incandescent document of the independent Black art scene of '70s Detroit has recently been reissued by New Zealand label Rain&Shine . . .
