"This one didn't catch me at first, I couldn't understand it. But after travelling for eight months all I wanted to do when I got home was to play this CD. It has complex rhythms and melodies, a good album to keep you on the edge of your seat. Donald Byrd is excellent as are his co-musicians.I think if you like Miles Davis you will like this one."
This is that deep inside your mind funk..It sneaks up on ya

"My man Ron Carter- what are you doin' to that bass on "Elmina"...Damn that's funky!! This is my favorite period (69'-70') of Mr. Donald Byrd with albums like: Ethiopian Knights, Electric Byrd, and this one- Kofi. Mickey Roker on drums, Ron Carter on bass and Duke Pearson on electric piano- with this rhythm section you know it's gonna be good! The songs are long and spacious usually with the groove tucked into the middle. Just another essential album in my ever growing jazzfunk collection. The goods!"

"This album is some of the funkiest jazz I have ever heard. This album is to die for, the bass lines are superb, the flute playing in suave' and Byrd's timing is out of this world. Occasionally I have a few long night drives through the darkness and this album is absolutely perfect.... it makes one feel like a "mean sort of cool" and would be perfect for a good movie score. Insanely terrific."
