This is a personal favorite of mine from the Nubian Emissary's vaunting catalog. In "Lanquidity" he directs the group to play some monstrous grooves which he subtly tweaks and stretches with improvised sections. And on the closing track he shoots us straight up to the Milky Way with his patented combination of the Arkestra vocal group and instrumental mindfuckery. Expand your sorry excuse of a nervous system with the cosmic vibrations of Herman Sonny Blount.
More Ra and related to follow.
