Rise Vision Coming.
Life Goes On Records, 2022.
Life Goes On Records present a reissue of Haki R. Madhubuti's Rise Vision Comin, originally released in 1976. A breathtaking self-conscious free-jazz masterwork, Rise Vision Comin summarizes more than 30 years of musical and theoretical/political expression from renowned activist/scholar/free-jazz pioneer Haki R. Standing on the verge of spiritual jazz aesthetic, his music remains timeless and unforgettable after its longstanding creation. The first album by the group NATION Afrikan Liberation Art Ensemble, Rise Vision Comin was released in 1976, and features among others Wallace Roney on trumpet, Clarence Seay on bass, and Agyei Akoto on saxophone who also served as creative director. It features nine tracks with the title track, "Rise, Vision, Comin" a great example of the adhesive comradery between instrumentation and Madhubuti's spoken-word.
