From the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Sounds of Liberation were at the forefront of Black Liberation music. After several gigs in elementary schools, prisons & community center's the band along with their manager George Gilmore (father of Linc Gilmore of Breakwater fame) travelled to NYC for a recording session at Columbia University. The five song session has never been heard before until now.
Sounds Of Liberation formed in early 1970 lead by vibraphonist Warren Robert Cheeseboro aka Khan Jamal, but it wasn't until the later arrival of Byard Lancaster that things started to take off. Byard was a master at making a deal (with or with-out the bands approval). This deal making lead to more gigs, and more recognition, especially from the local newspapers. Sounds Of Liberation was more of a community than a band at times and because of that spirit there was a strong desire by the entire group to work with school children as well as inmates. They did just that, and continued to do so throughout the early to mid 70's.
