Gunesh (or, more appropriately, The Gunesh Ensemble) was a jazz-prog outfit led by one of the world’s most incredible and entertaining percussionist, the late Rishad Shafi, who died in 2014.

Presch Media GmbH has done a wonderful service in reissuing their 1980 debut, which is less flashy or jazzy, but very mellow, progressive, and showing a glimpse of their future greatness.

The good news is that the band is apparently carrying on, and judging by the mp3s I’m hearing on their website, they will be in good hands for some time to come.
