Jamaaladeen Tacuma – Dancing in your Head (1984)

Dancing In Your Head is recorded in New York in 1984 and is from the album Renaissance Man by Jamaaladeen Tacuma.

Jamaaladeen Tacuma (born Rudy McDaniel, June 11, 1956) is an American free jazz bassist born in Hempstead, New York, perhaps best known for his albums as bandleader on the Gramavision label and for his work with Ornette Coleman  during the 1970s and 1980s (particularly in Coleman’s Prime Time band). The first three Prime Time recordings (Dancing in Your Head, Body Meta, and Of Human Feelings, all recorded in the late 1970s) feature Tacuma’s work on a Rickenbacker bass, a model popular among progressive rock musicians but rarely used on jazz recordings. He switched to a Steinberger bass in the 1980s, an instrument that helped him create his readily identifiable sound. [source]
