This is happy and vital music with good balance of cool inteligence and free jazz energy.
I guess, Carlos Ward should be taken more attention.

Souce of this is cassett tape, recording the noisy vinyl. So sound quality is not satisfactory. Sorry for this.

  1. Very interesting music. Great contributions by the sidemen. I don't remember hearing or seeing much of anything available in record stores by Karl Berger back in the 1960s and 1970s; I was only aware of his collaborations with Don Cherry -- since I was a rabid Don Cherry collector.
    This one's particularly delightful, and I find the sound of vinyl on cassette very soothing, and added to the experience of hearing this, rather than detracted. Thanks.

  2. I am very hppty that my over 25 years old cassette tape could revive now, and could give
    pleasure to people. In this blog, recently another Karl Berger album 'Peach church concert' has been up. As fare as I know, this has not been reissued as CD, accordingly, not so easy to obtain, I think. So pls. listen to this, if you like.

  3. hi, can you upload this again? i cant find it anywhere..
