Album Notes
Formed in 1975, the SPIRIT OF LIFE ENSEMBLE is under the Band Leadership of Multi-percussionist Daoud-David Williams. The music of this captivating afro-centric & multi cultural unit is a true reflection of the group's name. Their sound is soulful, passionate, and filled with infectious energy, while at the same time inventive and thought provoking in its concept, thereby capturing the spirit of the African sensibility. Although their music is deeply rooted in the Jazz tradition, it has been strongly influenced by the myriad of musical styles found in the African Diaspora. The rhythms of Latin America, South America, the Caribbean Islands, Africa, and the African-American musical genres of rhythm & blues, gospel, funk, and the blues permeate the sound of this electrifying Ensemble whose "Jazz with a World Beat" approach leaves your heart dancing long after your feet have stopped. The Music Director is Bob Ferrell (trombonist), and the Collective now boasts personnel of approximately 50 plus musicians.
