5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing music by the rare Liberation Music Orchestra September 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This April 1990 recording of Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra is one of a handful.The personnel is superlative: Carla Bley,cond,Dewey Redman,Joe Lovano,Branford Marsalis,Ken McIntyre,reeds;Tom Harrell,Earl Gardner,trumpet;Sharon Freeman,french horn;Ray Anderson,trombone;Joe Daley,tuba;Amina Claudine Myers,pîano;Mick Goodrick,guitar;Don Alias,perc;Juan Lazzaro Mendolas,flutes;and Paul Motian,drums.The music is at the same incredible level than on the "ballad of the fallen" album from 1982.The "dream keeper" suite,with words by Langston Hughes,is composed of eight tunes:the four parts titled "dream keeper" were written by Carla Bley;the four others come from Venezuela "canto del pilon" I & II,El Salvador "feliciano ama",and the Spanish Civil war "hymn of the anarchist women's movement".There are no words to describe the haunting beauty of this music, so close to a Duke Ellington's suite.Fanfares parts alternate with improvised moments,and how great it would have been to have Albert Ayler in the reed section ! Like in Charlie's "ballad of the fallen",the spanish tunes from the civil war may be the most emotionnal tunes,because they were the songs of men fighting desperatly against fascism and dictatorship.Speaking of the Spanish Civil War, if you're interested in these sad times of our history,I urge you to read George Orwell's writings on the subject.The second tune,"rabo de nube",was written by a cuban musician and arranged by Carla's daughter,Karen Mantler.Another masterpiece of this record is the version of "nkosi sikelel'i afrika",the anthem of the African National Congress.After a beautiful fanfare introduction,Dewey Redman comes in for a long free improvisation.

The group toured with a bunch of major players to some very selective dates and they were backed up by the Duke Ellington School choir where the concert was. It was one of those very rare moments in a jazz listener/collectors life. It was one of the best concerts I have ever seen and I have seen a fair share of jazz over the last 20 years. The album is one of my all time favorites, and with close to 3000 records, that says a lot. Such beauty and variety in composition. Feel free to email me.
