Album Review Gonjasufi: A Sufi and a Killer

MILES OF TRANE REVIEW: YES. By far most of my album reviews are positive, mainly because if it sucks then I'm disinclined to waste time listening further and even less to write about it. Man, this one deserves multiple listens and Pulitzer Prize quality raves. Sorry I'm deficient on the later but I will be doing my part very much on the former. Music categories have become so multi-tiered and sub-divided that I typically don't know where something fits. I guess Gonjasufi is post-hip-hop, or street avant-garde, or something, I don't know. Let's just call it great! Yes, Miles of Trane used an exclamation point, take that as a clue. Lala hasn't been licensed for this release so I'm providing an Amazon link so you can at least get 30-second samples, which will not do this excellent album justice.
