Ritual Beating System

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
A musical rollercoaster from start to finish, Ritual Beating System jolts us with its abrupt mood changes, yet never really strays from a percussive Brazilian-oriented theme.

A musical rollercoaster from start to finish, Ritual Beating System jolts us with its abrupt mood changes, yet never really strays from a percussive Brazilian-oriented theme. After opening with the soft Brazilian pop-jazz of "Retrato Calado," Bahia Black dives into hard-edged Portuguese-language rap "Capitao Do Asfalto" before embracing post-bop jazz on "The Seven Powers." Bahia's "all-star" lineup isn't exactly conventional -- percussionist Olodum a highly regarded figure in Northeastern Brazil's Afro-Brazilian culture and other Brazilian players are joined by fusion/post-bop greats Wayne Shorter soprano sax and Herbie Hancock piano, as well as avant-garde explorer Henry Threadgill flute and George Clinton associate Bernie Worrell organ. It takes an open-minded bunch to play something as pretty as "Guia Pro Congal" one minute and something as dissonant and abstract as the "outside" jazz number "Gwagwa O De" the next. And similarly, it will take open-minded listeners to fully appreciate this unpredictable CD.
