Synopsis

Album Description
First ever reissue of 1973 album for jazz artist called 'the John Coltrane of the organ'. Because of it's freeform, avant garde, experimental nature, Young used a loose aggregate of floating musicians, including guitarist James (Blood) Ulmer & a 'Mystery Guest' (maybe Pharaoh Sanders?). plus numerous percussionists.

MAGICAL MUSICAL MOMENT!!!
ROBERT L. DAVIS | LAS VEGAS, NEVADA USA | 03/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"DURING THE FUSION ERA, THIS ALBUM WAS A SPIRITUAL BLESSING FOR LARRY YOUNG(KHALID IBIN YASIN). THE MUSIC BY AND LARGE WAS SPONTANEOUS IMPROVISATION. THE MUSIC ON THIS ALBUM VARIES FROM MILD TEMPO SPIRITUALITY TO THE ALL-OUT UPTEMPO SPACEY AVANT-GARDE SPIRITUALITY. LARRY WAS GETTING SYNTHESIZER SOUNDS OUT OF THE HAMMOND B-3 ORGAN YEARS BEFORE SYNTHS BECAME COMMONPLACE. HIS TECHNIQUE WITH THE DRAWBARS IS WHAT CAUSED ARCHIE SHEPP TO REFER TO HIM AS THE JOHN COLTRANE OF THE ORGAN. THE MUSIC ON THIS ALBUM IS VERY POWERFUL AND HAS SOMEWHAT OF A HYPNOTIC EFFECT. PHAROAH SAUNDERS IS THE MYSTERY GUEST ARTIST. DIEDRE JOHNSON PLAYS VERY INSPIRED CELLO. THERE'S AN OLD SAYING "LET THE MUSIC SPEAK FOR ITSELF". I ENCOURAGE YOU TO PURCHASE THIS CD. YOU WILL THEN UNDERSTAND WHAT I HAVE MEEKLY TRIED TO PUT INTO WORDS CONCERNING THIS VERY EMOTIONAL MUSICAL RECORDING EVENT."

"Larry Young's Lawrence of Newark is the most sought up CD within jazz music today. The Lp is not available and I have been trying to get a copy for years. Larry plays his organ like a true cosmic player and with comrades like Pharoah Sanders is, this record reaches the highest level of the jazz and funky skies.
Larry Young alias Khalid Yasin is the one who plays with Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin on the superb LP/CD Love, Devotion & Surrender. If you like Hendrix, Santana or McLaughlin, you will be fascinated by this Young's CD."

"Wow--"Khalid of Space" alone is worth the five stars...an
utterly intense jazz-funk masterpiece. Like Mingus on acid..."
