Overview

Recorded in 1969, this is one of three albums to feature drummer Sunny Murray as a leader in 1969. Issued on the French Actuel label, it showcases Murray's brand of fiery, spiritual free jazz grooveology with sidemen Malachi Favors of the Art Ensemble of Chicago (which, as a band, came over to France a few weeks before to begin a residency), veteran saxophonist Byard Lancaster, and flutist and saxophonist Kenneth Terroade. Less than half an hour in length, it features four mid-length performances that amount to free jazz improvisation. It's compelling, and holds the listener's interest for its passion and intrigue, but this was not a band per se and the rough edges certainly show.
