Baikida Carroll - Orange fish tears(1974)

Baikida Carroll - Orange fish tears

Side A
1. Orange fish tears
2. Forest scorpion

Side B:
1. Rue roger
2. Porte D' Orleans

Baikida e.j. Carroll - trp, flh, seal horn, perc.
Olver Lake - ss, as, ts, fl, bamboo fl, perc.
Nana Vasconcelos - perc.
Manuel Villardel - ac piano, elc piano, perc.

rec. at Paris, June 1974, 3,4,5

This is the first leader album of Baikida Carroll. It seems there was no repress in vinyl, no issuance in CD. So this seems rare item.

As is the first album sometimes, Baikida tries to show various aspects of his music interests. That is, the first track is very spiritual and tranquill. The second track has taste of ethinic music. On repeting rhythm pattern on percussion, which reminds us of Latin American dance. The third is duo of Baikida and Oliver in abstract form which is one of free improvisation form Roscoe Mirchell likes. The fourth number is collective free improvisation style of AACM / BAG. This shows his good charcteristics of BAG member.

Somebody kindly uploaded new rip in flac. So I changed link to this new one.
