From the recording Manna
This tune was originally thirteen minutes long :-) Loren and I were vibing and playing our butts off and actually split the tune up. One tune was called Manna and the other Gilgal. I said to Loren, "I can really hear spoken word on this". Loren said he could as well and said he knew a really dope spoken word artists/rapper in Seattle. When I got the track back I couldn't believe it ! Shakiah Danielson not only has a great voice and vibe, she is a serious biblical scholar. In the tradition of the negro spiritual, she fuses the biblical story of Gilgal with the modern African-American experience. Just plain dope !
Loren McGee plays keys and drums on this one. It is so funky!
