Under The Sun (Arista Freedom)

LP (Item 40243) Arista Freedom, 1973 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

A great early album by this oft-overlooked spiritual avant group that included Lester Bowie, Oliver Lake, JD Parran, and Charles Bobo Shaw. Side one features the extended "Lover's Desire", a nice slightly-funky number that has a groove that's sort of modal. Side two of the album features "Hazrat The Sufi", a long creative avant piece, with insane ensemble playing that's very much in the AACM mode.
