The Return by Kamaal Williams; Bandcamp Page: The Return
Number 35 in the Wire Magazine (@thewiremagazine) Top 50 Releases of 2018.
The Return is sort of like Herbie Hancock’s 1973 band from The Head Hunters album were practicing. They decided to put down their instruments and take a break.
They retired to a nearby closet to smoke a joint.
It turned out that closet was a TARDIS.
During the course of several mind bending intergalactic and interdimensional adventures, on a remote planet, with a particularly smoking native population, the horn players decided to stay, and pass on their legacy of love and woodwinds.
When the remaining players finally re-opened that door again into their practice space, they discovered it was 2019.
They picked up their instruments and started playing again.
