Album Notes
"Volume One" is the the first album by Michael Veal & Aqua Ife, a 13-piece Afrobeat-jazz band based in New York City. Led by bassist/composer Michael Veal, the band boasts some of the finest jazz, African, and Afro-Cuban musicians in the New York area. Veal, who has played with Fela Kuti and Afro-Beat "co-pilot" Tony Allen, draws on various African styles, on imaginative jazz composers such as Sun Ra, Julius Hemphill and Randy Weston, and on electronic elements to take the listener on a beautiful ride through a deep vision of Afrobeat.
