Founded in the early 90s, Saddar Bazaar is a stoney-free acid folk combo from Bristols (UK) hugely inspired by the heavenly harmonies of indian droning raga. They released their first album back in 1995. This first effort provides a dynamic mixture of fuzzing acid rockin' chords and effervescent raga scales.

This was the first album that tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest made after his R&B phase ended. Particularly notable is that the set served as the recording debut of guitarist Grant Green; completing the band are pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Gene Ramey and drummer Elvin Jones.

Everyone sounds in fine form.
