1. Manna

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!
