A remarkable recording of some heavy, spiritual outside jazz from the early 70s, by FrankWright. Wright leads a quartet that includes Bobby Few on piano, Alan Silva on bass, and Mohammad Ali on drums who lean into "Center Of The World" parts one and two energetically, with rapturously strident playing and multilinear improv. The group is captured live in Rotterdam. LP, Vinyl record album

Hair ... LP Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ...
A great album by Stan Kenton – a reading of the Hair score, and a lot groovier than most of his other 60s work! Part of the reason for this is Ralph Carmichael – who does the arrangements for the record, and brings in plenty of the cool touches he was using on his own records from the time. The band bumps along with some great electric bass, tight drums from Paul Humphrey, and nice use of keyboards and percussion. Many tracks have vocals by a chorus that includes Edna Wright – and titles include "Where Do I Go", "Sodomy", "Easy To Be Hard", "Walking In Space", "Frank Mills", and "Colored Spade". LP, Vinyl record album
