Odd but good LP, on the Universal Justice label. Jazz with some rather heavy electric guitar and electric bass on side 1.
Side 2 is more of what I imagined the LP to be like. Some good horn work by Bowie and Hemphill on a Latin vibe. Track 2 cello heavy.
worth picking up if available. I do see that it was re-issued on Muse
titled P'NK J'ZZ Cat # MR-5232

All I can say is cool stuff. I've never seen that label before. Must have been very limited distribution.
Thanks for posting.
I think there are 4 LP's released on it. I have the first (Children of the Sun) and this one. There is another Human Arts Ensemble LP I almost bought this week.
I have this one somewhere: I should dig it out and give it another listen. Hemphill and cellist Abdul Wadud make a great team on Hemphill's original version of "The Hard Blues" on the COON BIDNESS release. The seventies has a bad rap in the mainstream jazz narrative, but the "underground" (which back then wasn't nearly as "underground" as it is today) was enjoying its richest moment with the efflorescence of the regional collective associations (the AACM in Chicago, BAG in St. Louis) and the loft jazz scene in New York. It is my favorite area of record collecting.
