‘American Afrikan (M.anifestations Remix)’
by Jon Jon Scott

With a co-sign from none other than Amiri Baraka and The Last Poets’ Umar Bin Hassan, Minneapolis spoken word artist/curator/educator/producer, e.g. bailey, who’s full length debut, American Afrikan, is a sprawling concept record spanning the middle passage and beyond. With glimpses of jazz, hip-hop, soul, electronica and Fela Kuti, bailey’s words soar, without being preachy. A powerful record that deserves your full attention. Now that Gil Scott-Heron has returned in splendid fashion with the engaging, I’m New Here, the timing couldn’t be better.
