Fela Kuti's 1975 'Confusion' shows him and Africa 70 at the heights of instrumental prowess and ambiguous jibes (the stabs are about to get a bit more direct and heated with 1977's Zombie). 'Confusion' begins with an unusual free jazz interplay between Fela on organ and drummer Tony Allen that has the presence of 2001: a space odyssey in its omnipresent drama.
