This double reissue brings back what I consider to be the acme of Marion's creativity. Both these albums are very thematic in their approach and though individual tunes work wonderfully well on their own, listening to whole "sides" of the Lps always gave the best results. In the mid '70s creative music/avant-garde was inextricably linked with politics and the flowering of Black cultural awareness in the U.S., and though you can hear a reflection of period politics in Marion's music, these dates also are richly spiritual. Geechee Recollections was recorded in June of '73 and is a remarkable aural study of African roots as manifested in black culture in the rural Southeastern seaboard [Marion is from Georgia], using African drumming and balaphone + the poetry of Jean Toomer. Sweet Earth Flying is from May of '74 and includes pianists Paul Bley and Muhal Richard Abrams doing some amazing support work, with the more contemplative material on side 1 {Sweet Earth suite] including also effectively using poetry and Eleven Light City taking off into some serious hard blowing which never loses its focus and manages to sound free but also maintain a melodic thread through it's 23 minutes. These dates show off Marion as a hard blower, and it was not too long before he took a comment that his music was too strong to heart and he lightened up his tone... too bad, because he was a monster on alto saxophone. Having these albums reissued together is a service to the art, and each deserve an easy 4-5 stars... in my book, they add up to eight! A must for any serious fan of real jazz!

First of all, these Impulse two-for-one imports are fabulous. There's a whole bunch of them, and they bring back a lot of stuff Impulse hasn't reissued, and at a great price. Check them all out.
These particular recordings have been impossible to find and both are from that loose African avant-garde period that was big -- no, happening -- no, uh -- underground? at the time. Think early Pharoah, early Bartz, the AACM and the recently reissued Don Cherry's "Organic Music Society". All part of a Black Consciousness scene bucking mainstream jazz and doing something new.
Dig it.

Marion Brown (1933-2010)

In the vein of AACM music or Don Cherry's "Mu Sessions".

Brown played on John Coltrane's "Ascension". He also taught at a number of Colleges in the 70's.
In the 80's, his muse directed him to painting and drawing.
