West Coast jazz mavericks, The Pyramids, led by their inspirational bandleader, Idris Ackamoor, return with a new album on Strut. The band met while in school in Ohio in the 1970s, where one of their teachers was renowned pianist, Cecil Taylor. Having disbanded in 1977, the group re-united in the 2010s following acclaim for their three independently released 1970s LPs from jazz aficionados and record collectors.

Recorded in Max Weissenfeldt’s analogue Philophon studio in Berlin, 'We Be All Africans' is a sparkling set of Afro- jazz-funk fusions, from the infectious chants of the title track to the reflective “Epiphany” and the yearning, mournful future single, “Silent Days” featuring the brilliant vocals of Bajka. The album is released 27th May 2016 on Strut Records.

The Pyramids have been hand-picked by Floating Points to open the West Coast leg of their live tour. Dates below:
