Alvinn Pall Sextet - S/T (Radio Canada International 1976)

Mind-blowing political jazz from Saxophonist Alvin Pall fronting a sextet featuring Sam Noto on Trumpet, Jerry Johnson on Trombone, George McFetridge on piano, Rick Homme on bass and Terry Clarke on drums.

This is very much an LP of two halves. Side one features two blisteringly fast standards and a beautiful ballad by Pall. This highlights what an amazing group this is, but gives no indication of what is to come.

Side Two is completely different and it's totally incredible. The whole side forms the “Trudeau Suite”, dedicated to the then Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau (father of the present incumbent Justin). The suite covers Trudeau’s somewhat turbulent first few years in office from 1968 to 1974.

The first track “Joyful”, describes Trudeau's election amidst a wave of “Trudeaumania”. When elected, he ushered in a wave of progressive reforms, such as legalising abortion and homosexuality, as well reforming divorce laws and pushing for institutional bilingualism. The track begins with a bell and then a voice, before breaking into a theme that sounds startling similar to Woody Shaw’s (actually Victor Lewis’s) “Seventh Avenue” (it was however written a couple of years before). Parallels between this group and Woody Shaw’s are easy, the front three play with all the incredible dynamism of Shaw, Carter Jefferson and Slide Hampton at their peak. This is phenomenal!! The second track “Melancholy” presumably describes the events and aftermath of the “October Crisis” in 1970. The FLQ, a QuĂ©bĂ©coise separatist terrorist group, kidnapped a British Diplomat and (later) a Canadian politician. In response Trudeau, claiming the country was in a state of “apprehended insurrection”, enacted the War Measures Act. The act suspended habeas corpus, allowing the police unlimited powers to detain any one and search property without a warrant. The army moved in to the streets of Quebec. In an infamous interview Trudeau was insouciant, imploring  the interviewer to “Just Watch Me” to see how far he would erode civil liberties.

👉 The Lightmen -Free As You Wanna Be
From the Now-Again Records website: «Drummer, bandleader and activist Bubbha Thomas had toured America with R&B revues, served as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight ahead jazz with legends before the political and social upheaval of the late 1960s led him to a path first charted by Coltrane. Free As You Wanna Be predates the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and is a harbinger of best of the 1970s jazz underground, a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo.
This is the first time that Free As You Wanna Be has seen reissue, and it is presented in both the issued stereo and previously unissued mono mixes as a double LP. »
AWESOME !!!

Another excellent Free Jazz album of 2017 that gets under your skin. Intense, political, challenging and one of my favourites.

Casually talking politics with Killer Mike đŸ”„
#lgv20 #Killermike #runthejewels #politicaljazz

"Compañeros fallen in the struggle—
ever onward to victory!
Don't go looking for my grave
For you won't find it.
My hands are those that go
In other's hands that are firing
My voice is that which is shouting
My dream, follows
And know that I only die
If you give up
For those who die in combat l
Live on in every compañero
For those who die in combat
Life on in every...compañero."
(Poem found in pocket of student killed when U.S.-backed National Guard of El Salvador massacred a university protest)

Charlie Haden + Carla Bley: The Ballad of the Fallen (ECM Records, 1983). 13 years after releasing "Liberation Music Orchestra", Charlie Haden and Carla Bley continue to lift up the voices of the oppressed and those who have given their lives resisting colonialism and fascism around the world. The album contains interpretations of powerful, Revolutionary songs from the Spanish Civil War, El Salvador, Portugal, and Chile, backed by Carla Bley's creative arrangements for a large ensemble that includes legends like Don Cherry, Paul Motian, and Dewey Redman. #charliehaden #carlabley #doncherry #freejazz #jazz #revolutionarymusic #resist #protestmusic #avantgardejazz #vinyl #musicasresistance #politicalmusic #politicaljazz #onmyturntable #cratedigging #nowspinning #nowplaying #nofoodjustwax

Idag kom ett nytt avsnitt av "Hey Mr. Jesse" med @heymrjesse och den nÄgot mindre entusiastiske @spudswings, alla swing-DJ:s Àlsklingspodcast. Denna gÄng med en lÄt frÄn vÄr nya skiva, och det finste omdöme en gammal punkare kan fÄ:
"Cats & Dinosaurs, how would I describe it, they tore the box open, they climbed out of the box, they stomped on the box, they lit the box on fire and then they peed on it, in a non gender-specific way.... I love it, I can't get enough of these guys!" Lyssna pÄ hela avsnittet vetja, massa bra musiktips!
