Jazz saxophonist Billy Harper is backed by the likes of Billy Cobham, Elvin Jones, George Cables, Julian Priester, Jimmy Owens and more for this recording from jazz's black consciousness movement.

"Capra Black remains one of the seminal recordings of jazz's black consciousness movement. A profoundly spiritual effort that channels both the intellectual complexity of the avant-garde as well as the emotional potency of gospel, its focus and assurance belie Billy Harper's inexperience as a leader. Backed by an all-star supporting unit including trombonist Julian Priester and drummer Billy Cobham, Harper's tenor summons the brute force and mystical resolve of John Coltrane but transcends its influences to communicate thoughts and feelings both idiosyncratic and universal. This is music of remarkable corporeal substance that somehow expresses the pure language of the soul." - by Jason Ankeny/AMG
