Great album, but needs to be completed by iTS

I have a cassette tape from a scratchy old LP of this album in the 1980's. I too have been waiting a long time for this reissue. The 1994 release went out of print almost before it hit the shelves. M'Boom is a jazz percussion classic by any standard!

One note about the 'partial album' offered here: the tracks are out of sequence. The CD version includes these tracks:

1. Onomatopoeia
2. Twinkle Toes
3. Caravanserai
4. January V
5. The glorious Monster
6. Rumble in the Jungle
7. Morning / Midday
8. Epistrophy
9. Kujichaglia

I surely would love to see M'Boom completed at iTS & given iTunes Plus treatment. Apple, please do what you can! Copies of this CD are in tight supply through eBay, selling for up to $60 new or $40 used.

I've been waiting for this album to be on CD (or iTunes, as it happens) for YEARS! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Two thumbs up. Five stars. Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. If you've never heard this material, you're in for a treat. (I just previewed my review and it is calling me "Tough Cookies Joe." What the heck is THAT? Whatever. This is a great package of tunes.)

A Perfect Companion

i'm a drummer. and i haven't been this impressed with a collaboration of percussionists since Mickey Hart's Diga Rhythm Band, which is a perfect match to go with this album. buy this. then get Diga Rhythm Band. definitly required listening for ALL percussionists.
