ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sankofa! He has done it again! The medicine man, Lawrence Watson, the truest keeper of the tradition that I know of, has provided Prescriptions. Not art for art’s sake, but music for the healing and restoration of the human spirit.

Educated in the tradition of our musician priest, Larry has used refined senses and ancestral knowledge to identify the medicine present in our musical environment; from pop to jazz to spirituals. In keeping with African traditions of healing, he has activated the medicinal power contained in each song through his Word Power. Watson as the elder has called together the ancestors, the forces of nature and the will of the Almighty in this sacred record(re-cord). The circle is unbroken.

Sankofa! The spirit of Truth is reborn. The message is clear. Through God’s power, self-reflection, love, intimate communication, and harmony with what is natural, we can and must "save ourselves".

~Philip Doran Bailey, Berklee alum and vocalist, percussionist for Earth Wind and Fire

Thank you
Prescriptions is a continuation of Lawrence Watson's gift of musical education. When I listen, I hear a tribute to our rich and important musical history in the USA. All young artists should be taking note of Lawrence's choices.
