New Chris McGregorVery Urgent ... CD
Polydor/Fledgling (UK), 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest British jazz albums ever to feature the Blue Notes – the legendary South African jazz group who left their country in the mid 60s, and took up an expatriot home in London! The session's led by pianist Chris McGregor, but it features a sextet that includes Blue Note members Louis Moholo on drums, Dudu Pukwana on alto sax, Mongezi Feza on pocket trumpet, and Johnny Dyani on bass – in addition to British tenor player Ronnie Beer. The sound of the work is pretty tremendous – ranging from completely free and outside jazz to slower, more somber tunes that strongly recall the later work of the players in the group. All tunes are originals by McGregor and Pukwana – save for the track "Don't Stir The Beehive", which is a reworking of a traditional African tune. Other titles include "The Sounds Begin Again", "White Lies", "Heart's Vibrations", and "Marie My Dear". CD
