Clifford Thornton - Ketchaoua - BYG/Actuel FR 1969 1st press VG+/VG+
One of the most committed jazzmen in the struggle for civil rights and anti-imperialism fight delivers an incandescent and free/spiritual record dedicated to the great historic mosque of Algiers. The top brass of avant-garde jazz is gathered here in a Parisian studio: Thornton on cornet, Grachan Moncur III on trombone, Archie Shepp on sax, the French bassist Beb Guerin, the drummer Sunny Murray... When jazz becomes the reflection of an era as troubled as it is inspiring. Discreet water damage at the bottom right on front and normal wear.
