(CD/2xLP) Strut STRUTCD/LP028, 2002-04-29

"Strut continue their re-issue programme of the '70s catalogue of Oneness Of Juju, one of the most groundbreaking bands of their time. From early avant-garde jazz work on the Strata East label to their later fusions of Afrobeat, funk and spritual jazz, Oneness stand as a huge influence for today's jazz scene.

'Space Jungle Luv' was recorded and released in 1976 as the follow-up to Oneness Of Juju's breakthrough 'African Rhythms' set. The album moved the band away from the dancefloor and into the realms of Sun Ra's cosmology, bringing modal jazz and ambient atmospherics into their music. The funky basslines and African percussion remain but within a more melodic setting showcasing the incredible vocals of Jackie Holoman-Lewis to the full."
