Recorded in concert at Sista's Place in Brooklyn, New York on April 8, 2000.
Avid multi-instrumentalist and composer Ken McIntyre often performed this saxophone solo as a welcoming introduction at the beginning of his shows.
In the early 1990s Ken McIntyre changed his name to Makanda Ken McIntyre.
According to the story, while touring in Zimbabwe, a stranger handed him a piece of paper with the word "MAKANDA" written on it.
"Makanda" means "many skins" or "many heads" in African dialects.
