1974 Album on Vinyl LP!

King of Kings was recorded in 1974 and features a wider array of instruments including Ugandan harp and balafon. Perhaps best known for the expansive "Nsorama (The Stars)," a seminal work of spiritual jazz. the early 1970s, the Ohio band the Pyramids were laying down sounds that stand the test of time. They mixed jazz (free, bop, and fusion) with powerful funk grooves and elements of African styles. KING OF KINGS has a slightly higher soul/R&B quotient than their other discs, but make no mistake - their singularly powerful, driving, and inclusive approach to rhythm glows throughout.
