Bremen 1969 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Lila Eule, Bremen, Germany; April 24, 1969. Very good satellite broadcast.

Marion Brown might be better known as the saxophonist on John Coltrane’s Ascension but he is not only a highly regarded musician, he is a noted academic as well. Music reviewer Michael Stack calls the ethnomusicologist “one of the more unrecognized musicians in the New Thing movement.”

Thanks to unclewolfi for sharing the show at Dime.

  2. Wow!Many thanks! Marion Brown is one of the neglected masters of the era. Perhaps it’s because he wasn’t quite as aggressive as the others. But his lyricism had an intelligence and energy that allowed him to stand right next to his peers: Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp, John Tchicai et. al. Trane heard it. That’s why he’s on Ascension. Brown recorded one of the earliest (and best) ECMs: Afternoon Of A Georgia Faun. Hopefully people will hear this and explore his discography. It’s pretty much all good except for one or two stray albums.

  4. Great show. Great Quartet. All playing at a high level. I have Ascension but didn’t remember Marion Brown. I’ll be learning more. Thanks.
