An oddity in John’s discography – low key, ritualistic, introspective and largely influenced by African music. The central title-track is not particularly free, but is a wildly diverse and wonderfully textural highlight. […]

All About Jazz.
Kulu Sé Mama is essential listening for anyone interested in the immediate pre-history of astral jazz. […]
