"When The Hypnotics handed over this monster, they mentioned something about its 'Egyptian' vibe, so -- on top of the fact that a couple of them are sons of Ra trumpeter Phil Cohran -- it seemed apposite to couple it with new recordings made for us in Cairo by space jazz luminary Salah Ragab, who once himself recorded and toured with the Arkestra. The shimmering, burnished, refined funk of Sankofa takes Tony Allen's 'Losun' for its departure point; the Cairo side is a burning basement session in the Ra big-band tradition, full of life and living, heavy on the percussion and choca with fine solos."
