This is one of my favorite Sonny Fortune recordings. A multi-talented artist with a distinctive sound on both Alto and Soprano Saxophones while adding vibrant colorations on Flute, Sonny Fortune has been overlooked for much too long. If you like music played with passion and finesse, you need to add "Serengeti Minstrel" to your collection. The disc starts out with the festive "Bacchanal". The rhythm section is superb as Sonny's flute floats and darts like a Brazilian dancer at carnival. At the start, Woody and Sonny play in unison before splitting off to show their respective chops as great soloist.
In between, Barron and DeJohnette are exceptional. The title track is ten minutes of pure musical entertainment. The Sonny Fortune - Four In One (CD starts out kind of mysterious and subdued with Gary King showing off his chops with some great bass harmonics. The track then shifts to a very funky groove coupled with several time-shifts to tease your ears before moving into a very passionate dance between the percussion, handclaps and saxophone.
On this track, Fortune reminds me of John Coltrane when he continuously reinterprets his soprano statements several times before exploding into a torrential swirl of cascading energy. The musicians displayed excellent chemistry throughout with percussionists Sammy Figueroa and Rafael Cruz laying down some mean rhythms to spice up the sound. This beautiful composition adds a nice touch of softness to an otherwise smoldering disc.
From my perspective, the real magic happens on this recording because Sonny Fortune and Jack Dejohnette are locked in as they push and challenge each other so brilliantly.
