NEXUS with Paul Horn, flutes and alto sax

This album was recorded in 1975. Through inspired improvisations, NEXUS and Paul Horn created an emotionally potent and stylistically diverse album that colorfully merged strong, earthy rhythms with cultural influences from South America, Africa, India, Tibet and the U.S.A.
