This drummer/composer/educator may be not that familiar to US jazz fans, as he moved to Europe long ago - here is a nice documenary on his work:

I have this and like it, and of course, he has the vocal cameo on "Mingus Moves".

Interest figure -- a missing link whose rhythmic ideas had a big impact on Dave Holland and especially Steve Coleman. For my book I interviewed him about his time in Detroit -- 1965-1971 -- when he was involved with a little-known but important self-determination organization called the Detroit Creative Musicians Association and an exploratory band called Focus Novii, which also included James Blood Ulmer. (The book, "Jazz from Detroit," will be published July 8 by the University of Michigan Press.)

Congrats on the book...I'm looking forward to reading it!

Will there be an accompanying CD?

I had an LP by him that I unloaded.  I liked the LP, but I didn't want to be responsible for something that rare.
