Editorial Reviews

2009 two CD compilation. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and the civil rights movement of the 1960s loom large as self-determination, economic power and musical freedom led to revolutionary Jazz artists finding new paths - both musical and economic. Concurrent with the emergence of the counter culture and underground Rock movement in the 1960s and years before the D-I-Y cultural revolution of Punk in the 1970s, Sun Ra, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, the Art Ensemble Of Chicago and others 'took control' of their own work by recording, releasing and distributing their own music themselves. This double disc set features many hidden gems of records made on very small run cottage-industry Jazz labels from this period - the original DIY. records! Soul Jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars NON-MAINSTREAM JAZZ FROM INDEPENDENT ARTISTS December 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
Two discs 73,57 minutes each approximately. The sound is very good,especially considering the span of time and the various recording conditions available to these musicians. The booklet is very informative,setting this music in the context of the times. Reading the fairly long essay,which combines the struggle of African-Americans,with jazz woven throughout,is very enlightening. A number of the artists in this collection are juxtaposed with the struggle for equality,and reading their stories puts this music into sharper focus. This music is in the same vein as Max Roach's "Freedom Now Suite" ("We Insist!") recorded in 1960,on the Candid label. There are a number of black and white photographs,either of the artists,or of then current events,which shaped several pieces (if not most of them) of music found in this collection. There is an accompanying large-format book (reviewed elsewhere) containing beautiful reproductions of album covers and essays,from these,and other artists,from this era (edited by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker),which is icing on the cake,and helps place this music in it's proper perspective. This book ("Freedom Rhythm & Sound") is an important part of this release and shouldn't be neglected. After hearing this music and viewing the book (which has short essays also),one gets the true meaning of "underground",as it pertains to these musicians,their music,and the times they lived in.

This music is a prime example of jazz meeting what was (at the time) known as "black power". African-American jazz artists were starting to pull away from the "entertainer" idea,wanting to be looked upon as true "artists".

5.0 out of 5 stars free jazz but with a solid rhythm December 18, 2010
If you like or love any of the artists on these CDs, buy this. This is solid avant garde jazz, and no filler, believe me! And the price is soooo reasonable. Great singing too. Best "hidden gems" collection I've ever heard. These are power cuts, sound is strong even when played low.
As mentioned above, this is a good match for the Max Roach "We Insist".
Perhaps where jazz would be is white people hadn't diluted and put it on a detour. No sell outs here!
