Trance drumming by Chief Bey a Yoruba priest drummer. Influenced by the Cuban and Puerto Rican drummers in Harlem. Has played with some of the Giants in Jazz. Has a great voice (bass baritione, but at the time was the wrong color for the Metropolitan Opera). Read the Siren's Lure in the notes if you have a chance.
