O’s Notes: Spoken word, history, entertainment, talking drums, African instruments and education are what The African Nubian Suite is all about. Wayne B. Chandler is the narrator and the strong roster of musicians includes Lewis Nash (d), T.K. Blue (sax, fl), Cándido (perc) and Howard Johnson (tube). Dr. Randy Weston (p) is the composer and bandleader, an ethnomusicologist with incredible passion for Africa and casting it in the bright, positive light that it deserves. It is not a pure jazz album but an enlightening experience.
