Editor's Info:
After leaving Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi band trombonist Julian Priester and synthesizer pioneer Dr Patrick Gleeson put together this 'all-star' session with drummers Eric Gravatt (ex Weather Report, McCoy Tyner) and Ndugu Chancler (ex Miles Davis, Santana etc etc), guitarist Bill Connors (ex Chick Corea's Return To Forever), bassists Ron McClure (alumnus of Charles Lloyd's 60s band) and Henry Franklin (ex Archie Shepp and Sonny Rollins), and reedmen Hadley Caliman and David Johnson ( both associated with Bobby Hutcherson's groups).
Extending the experiments of the Mwandishi band (for which Priester was also a songwriter) this music can also be related to Miles Davis's robust Afro-funk-slanted electric group music of the period. Pumping bass ostinati, riffs and a big 'tribal' beat connect "Love, Love" to the music of Sly Stone and Funkadelic as well, while the shifting clouds of spacey improvising can also make a listener think of minimal music or Sun Ra. More than 30 years later this slice of proto-cyberfunk is still thoroughly enjoyable.

Artist History

Born in Chicago in 1935, Julian Priester worked with Sun Ra and Lionel Hampton in the 1950s. In the1960s he was in Max Roach's band with Eric Dolphy and Booker Littlle, played with Duke Ellington, and appeared on John Coltrane's legendary "Africa/Brass" sessions.
After "Love, Love" Priester made a second ECM album under his own name, "Polarization", in 1977, and in the early 1980s was a member of Dave Holland's groups, playing on "Jumpin' In" and "Seeds of Time". In the late 80s he rejoined Sun Ra, and in the 1990s he toured with Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra. Now 70 years old he continues to play creative music as both a bandleader and freelance musician.
