Fela Ransome-Kuti and the Africa ’70 with Ginger Baker, ‘Live!’ (Knitting Factory Records)(1971) is Live From The Vault Tonight, Tomorrow is Festival night at jamfest, and Playing Now on JamFest is “What’cha Know About (featuring G Love)” by Donavon Frankenreiter from the Donavon Frankenreiter (Universal Records)(2004) Album!

Fela Ransome-Kuti, known for his masterful Afrobeat style, joined forces with Ginger Baker in 1971 to create a legendary album, ‘Live!’. Recorded in Lagos, Nigeria, this album transcends genres with its fusion of African rhythms and jazz-rock, creating a groundbreaking sound that still resonates today. The energy and passion of the performers are palpable in each track, from the uplift of “Let’s Start” to the raw emotion of “Ye Ye De Smell”, showcasing the dynamics of both musicians in their prime. The 12-minute improvisational piece “Egbe Mi O” perfectly captures the incredible talent and musicianship of the entire ensemble, highlighting their sheer musical prowess. However, beyond its musical significance, ‘Live!’ was also a forceful political statement against government corruption and oppression, with tracks such as “Igbe” and “Black Man’s Cry” seething with raw emotion and power. Recognized as an important landmark in both African and jazz music history, ‘Live!’ stands as a testament to the power and impact of cross-cultural collaboration, showcasing the transformative potential of art even in the face of adversity.
