After leaving Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band trombonist Julian Priester and synthesizer pioneer Dr Patrick Gleeson put together this now-legendary album in two sessions in 1973. Extending the experiments of the Hancock sextet this music can also be related to Miles Davis’s robust Afro-funk-slanted electric group music of the period. Pumping bass ostinati, riffs and a big ‘tribal’ beat connect Love, Love to the music of Sly Stone and Funkadelic as well, while the shifting clouds of spacey improvising can also make a listener think of minimal music or Sun Ra. More than 40 years later this slice of proto-cyberfunk is still thoroughly enjoyable and timely.
