Reissued on vinyl for the first time since its release in 1971, Iris Muhammad's Peace and Rhythm blends Eastern influences with opulent funk, resulting in a listening experience that is equal parts smooth, heady and uplifting. Released months after the drummer’s debut, Black Rhythm Revolution!, the album’s centerpiece is “The Peace and Rhythm Suite”—a two-part, side-long ambient composition that was far ahead of its time. On the flip side, Muhammad partners with his wife, soul singer Sakinah Muhammad (who rose to fame with The Crystals under the name La La Brooks), for the pop-forward “Brother You Know You’re Doing Wrong” and “I’m a Believer,” while the drummer also leads a cover of Wilson Pickett’s “Don’t Knock My Love.” Joining the Muhammads is an uber-talented line up of sidemen, including bassist Ron Carter, keyboardist Kenny Barron, guitarist Melvin Sparks and electric bassist Kenny Barron, among others.

Limited to 1,000 copies, this VMP and Jazz Dispensary special edition of Idris Muhammad's Peace and Rhythm is pressed on AAA 180g 1LP Believer Gold & Black Swirl vinyl at Record Technology Incorporated (RTI). The album will arrive in a single tip-on, foil stamped and numbered jacket along with an obi strip. It's mastered by Kevin Gray of Cohearant Audio with lacquers cut from the original analog tapes.
