an incredible session from the legendary tribe records scene – an equal effort from leader doug hammond and keyboardist david durrah, who contributes some groundbreaking fender rhodes and moog work to the set! hammond handles drums plus a bit of vocals and synthesizer on the session – working alongside durrah in a groove that mixes electric and acoustic instrumentation into a totally righteous sound with lots of heavy afro jazz leanings. a number of tracks feature great vocals from hammond – righteous, and with a beautifully souful message-oriented approach – and a few other tracks, such as the classic "space i" and "space ii", feature a sparer all-electric sound. the whole thing's wonderful – skittishly rhythmic, warmly flowing, and righteously beautiful. titles include "sea of nurnen", "fidalgo detour", "reflections", "space ii", and "for real"
