THE PYRAMIDS :: They Play To Make Music Fire!: The Pyramids, 1973-1976:: Disko B Records:: $46.99:: Before "world music" became synonymous with a toothless vision of cultural appropriation, a quintet of Antioch students attempted to puncture the envelope of American jazz hegemony. Fueled by anti-war sentiment and Black Power fury, the Pyramids burst out of Ohio, eventually trekking through Ethiopia, Kenya, and Ghana in search of what they termed "art as social activism." A trio of independently created, crucial LPs ensued, mixing the energy of the group's rage with the avant-garde strangeness of their physical jazz odyssey.
