Joe Harriott Double Quintet - Indo-Jazz Suite

 This is a recent discovery for me. Ran across it at someone's yard sale. Gave em a buck. Took the chance and after a couple of listens, I'm really digging it.
 The title is pretty explanatory as to what you will get, but hey India was big in 1966! I really dig this and can't wait to turn it on to the prog goons.

 FTR as I was getting ready to post this I found that Orgy In Rhythm blog did an awesome write up of this record a few years ago. It has since been re-upped there this past June. Been following that blog for years. I should have been more aware of this.

Never the less, I have my own vinyl copy that I am going to share with y'all. Hope ya like it.
