Horace Silver - I'm Aware of the Animals Within Me (ft. Salome Bey) [1972]

From Horace Silver's brief psychedelic/spiritual phase in the early 70's, this track kicks off with a perfectly at peace melody bed of electric piano and quickly layers on empowered vocals from Salome Bey. The song's focus on finding balance and control of oneself sets it apart from the crowd and provides a great perspective on the importance of recognizing your problems instead of running from them. I could do with a million more records like this.
