Soul/R&B sounds from the Pyramids

King Of Kings was recorded in 1974 and features a wider array of instruments including Ugandan Harp and Balafon. Perhaps best known for the expansive "Nsorama (The Stars)" a seminal work of spiritual jazz.

"Some people in America think of jazz and funk as East Coast/West Coast concepts — record companies, clubs, and musicians tend to be based on one or the other. After all, there couldn't be much of interest coming out of the Midwest, could there? Wrong — in the early 1970s, the Ohio band the Pyramids were laying down sounds that stand the test of time. They mixed jazz (free, bop, and fusion) with powerful funk grooves and elements of African styles. King Of Kings has a slightly higher soul/R&B quotient than their other discs, but make no mistake — their singularly powerful, driving, and inclusive approach to rhythm glows throughout." — AllMusic
