Earlier in the year, Mo-Jazz delivered the first installment of “Live At Haight Levels”, an album based around a recently rediscovered 1967 live recording of Afro Blue Persuasion, an almost unknown Bay Area Afro-jazz band fronted by Vibraphone player and San Francisco scene stalwart Ulysses Crockett. Here they deliver the second and final part, which is every bit as essential as its predecessor. Highlights include the fluttering flutes, Cuban drums and dancing piano riffs of “Cuban Fantasy”, the spiraling, life-affirming brilliance of “Mambo At The M” (where Crockett’s vibraphone skills come to the fore) and the dusty jazz wig-out that is “Night In Tunesia”.
