A frequent drummer on some of the most visible Kudu sessions, Idris Muhammad was finally signed to the label as a recording artist, and marked his album debut with the sensational POWER OF SOUL. With Bob James writing the charts, and Grover Washington, Jr. providing some exquisite contributions on the saxophone, the album made quite a splash at the time, and quickly established Idris as a force to contend with on the music scene. This is the first time this seminal album is available on CD.

"A CLASSIC from the 70's. These guys kicked BUTT on this. If you
listen close, you can hear Idris in the mix saying "all right", "all
right" as they weave their improvisational way through the 4 charts.
It's best to crank this one up VERY loud to get the proper mood and
effect. Brecker and Grover Washington are fabulous on this. This is
my favorite jazz-funk recording of the 1000's of jazz cd's in my
collection. It never fails to get me grooving, even though I've
heard it 100's of times (including vinyl back in the 70's and 80's).
I remember the night I first heard this on that KUDU record I bought
at a local record shop that's long gone now. It was like "YEA BABY,
THIS IS IT!" Absolutely fantastic jazz-funk. Bob James is at his
funkiest on this as well. Idris's other KUDU recordings never even
came close to "Power of Soul". I have them all, but this is his
masterpiece. I've introduced several people to this recording who, not
surprisingly, have never heard of it OR Idris Muhammad, but thanked me
afterwards. Very, very hip stuff from those golden 70's now available
