One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from the legendary Phil Cohran - a previously-unissued performance from 1993, and one that's every bit as wonderful as his rare albums of the late 60s! The set was recorded at the planetarium in Chicago - and for the date, Cohran comes up with a really cosmic sound - a small combo that's heavy on string sounds from guitar, bass, and harp - layered together beautifully to create these Alice Coltrane-like undercurrents - over which the group solos with flute, trumpet, and trombone! There's less players here than on some of Cohran's older Artistic Heritage Ensemble sets, but the sound is exactly like those records - right down to some key moments in which Phil plays his amazing Frankiphone - an electrified kalimba with a tremendous tone. Titles include "White Nile", "Cohran Blues", "The Dogon", "Sahara", "Kalahari", and "Kilimanjaro" - Dusty Groove
