**500 copies, strictly no repress** Smalltown Supersound are going hard on the free jazz this year - so much so that they've set up new sub-label Actions For Free Jazz to accommodate the load. This was the slogan for Smalltown Superjazzz and was borrowed at the time from Don Cherry and Krystzof Penderecki’s The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra track Actions For Free Jazz Orchestra from the 1971 album Actions. The inspiration for the label is BYG Actuel, Incus, Freedom and ESP-Disk. AFJ's latest foray into the genre pairs New York saxophonist Joe McPhee with Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. The duo cycle through six impressionistic skronk workouts on the album Lift Every Voice and Sing. Recorded in Oslo’s small and intimate St. Edmund’s Church the 13th of December 2017, this LP features compositions by James Weldon Johnson, Thelonious Monk and Joe McPhee plus two by McPhee and Nilssen-Love. The album was mixed, edited and mastered by Lasse Marhaug and is vinyl only, no digital. Artwork by Kim Hiorthøy.
