It's No Possible
Fela Kuti Lyrics

Informal poll. Hit play and read on.
Are you a pessimist or, are you an optimist?
I've had a running conversation with more than a 'few' people, for years. All dear friends and as such, I value their opinion.
In the interest of disclosure, I count myself as an optimist, for the most part, pessimist ... very little.
I almost can't help it, a large part is how I was raised. Farmers play the long game.
Didn't rain today. Hopefully, it will tomorrow.
Sorry pessimists. I sort of painted you into a corner.
Someone plays Fela, and asks you why.

Igho Chico's alto sax playing was such a dominant component of Fela's sound at this early stage of its evolution. You can hear that rolling-water riding roughshod style that made some commentators the sound to Sonny Rollins. The heavy syncopation so defined the Afrobeat during this period. This style clearly had no precedent. Every critic on the beat had to sit up and take notice. So much experimentation and fusion going on at the same time as the bebop Era jazz was transforming into the jazz fusion with Miles Davis driving the Weather Report and the Mahavishnu Experience in the States back in the days. ..late 60s and early 70s. It was incredible explosion of extraterrestrial music landing on this planet. ....a bomb meen. ...


Igo and Rusty Bryant are two of the most underrated sax players of all time. Igo was as important as Tony or anyone else in the formative years indeed. As great as Fela took up the sax slack and incredibly as well after controversy in the band forced Igo out, at least that's what's been reported about that situation, no one was in Igo's league, just a hearing of him on Fight to Finish or Who're You proves it.

As one of Fela boys, who admire him, followed him, this music reminds me of him, when he was @ Rabiatu Thompson shitta, Afro sport. He was @ his pinacle, this is what we call music, wel compose, well arrange Fela RIP.

I haven't heard this in years, possible the last time I heard this was in 1980 or 1981. Once I heard the chorus memories came running back. Thanks for posting.
