About "Jujus/Alchemy of the Blues", Fabio expresses: "I feel that these [poems] represent the epitome of my experimenting with the integration of music and poetry in a Black idiom taken from the rich source of inspiration welling from the Black experience here in America." Accompanied by her children or her house band also known as "Don’t Fight the Feeling", this album is the sophisticated sequel to "Boss Soul: 12 Poems by Sarah Webster Fabio" (see FW09710).

Like so many others, this came like a bolt out of the blue and, even though it's well before payday, I had to have this astonishing album on vinyl to prove it exists. The feel of the tunes makes me feel like the Impressions do, Curtis Mayfield, the big spaces and instinctive horns and stuff drifting in and out. Great grooves and I can see lots of ghosts nodding along to this with big smiles on their faces. At last! Anthony Cottrell
