12th volume in the BYG Actuel series; 180 gram vinyl. "Super-session recorded in Paris on August 17, 1969. Alan Silva collected here many of the top free jazz players of the time, an incredible 11-piece ensemble featuring, among others, Grachan Moncur III, Archie Shepp, Anthony Braxton, Dave Burrell, Leroy Jenkins, and Malachi Favors. As a result, this is a very free record and a historical document of Pan-African high art music. Two tracks."
" I haven't given up my quest of finding music that truly pushes the extreme. Every time I think I have heard it all something always shows up that completely tears my head off & humbles me. I once thought the Nihilist Spasm Band was about as far out as you could get, then of course somebody played me a copy of Harry Chapin's "Sniper" album and it was back to the drawing board. Well my latest entry in the "Most Fucked Up Album Of All Time" stakes is this 1969 outing by Alan Silva And His Celestrial Communication Orchestra. This album really has hair on it." HeadHeritage
