After forming in San Francisco while working on the Marvin X theatre piece 'The Resurrection of the Dead', JuJu began to hone their uncompromising fusion of Afro-Latin rhythms with free and spiritual jazz before signing to Strata-East for the 'A Message From Mozambique' album in 1972. 'We moved to New York and became part of the avant-garde community on the Lower East Side and Greenwich Village', remembers bandleader Plunky Branch. Following a high profile live show at the Lincoln Center, Ornette Coleman invited JuJu to his gallery and loft at 131 Prince Street to perform there and to stay on while he left on tour. 'That was life-changing for us', continues Plunky. 'It was fabulous. The recordings you hear on this album are in close proximity to each other, maybe across one day or a weekend at the gallery'.
