Oliver Lake - Life Dance Of Is

Oliver Lake - Life Dance Of Is 

Great album by a great band on a great label. Pheeroan akLaff and Anthony Davis are stellar, as expected, and Buster Williams kills it on Comous. Lake is determined and focused throughout, wearing the band like a fine suit around his tunes. Don't sleep on Michael Gregory's T-fon, either.

  1. Rite-ing
  2. Comous
  3. Shu-ful
  4. T-fon (Michael Gregory Jackson)
