Here`s What happening in 1982. The forces to be have very mystical powers to the inspiration of the very talented young bassist Don Ridgeway, former solo bassist with the African jazz group Mombasa. The first recordings from the group Ikwezi, led by Don Ridgeway, is a mixture of all there is. Tasteful compositions from Ridgeway with good structure based on the polytonal and ostinato bass lines, puts motion in the body: “Get Down And Do It Right”! This group should be heard, and by the turn of the 1982 season it will be heard. A self style, clean with confidence and conviction. (Lou Blackburn/ Mombasa, from liner notes of the original LP).
