ANCESTOR WORSHIP 59: THE FREEDOM SUITE

Our project for this month is an investigation into the music recorded by BYG Records following a music festival held in Paris in 1969, collected on a 3-disc boox set called JazzActuel produced by Thurston Moore & Byron Coley that I found in the collection of Mark Ritsema in Rotterdam. Tonight’s program features Volume 1, which includes cuts by Steve Lacy, Archie Shepp, Sunny Murray, Sonny Sharrock, Grachan Moncur III, Clifford Thornton, and Jacques Coursil.
