DOUG HAMMOND & DAVID DURRAH
Reflections In The Sea Of Nurnen
An incredible session from the legendary Tribe Records scene an equal effort from leader Doug Hammond and keyboardist David Durrah, who contributes some ground breaking 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 soulful 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 things wonderful skittishly rhythmic, warmly flowing, and righteously beautiful. Titles include Sea Of Nurnen, Fidalgo Detour, Reflections, Space II, and For Real.
