Frank Lowe Orchestra-Lowe and behold., Musicworks 3002,1977


This ones for Aussie Tony, not my favorite Lowe by any means... flawed by the very high standards of ' the Flam', and other magnificent masterpieces ...by F.Lowe who simply was one of the of the greatest period.!

the AACM and more specifically Wadada Leo Smith;s influence is obvious here

My own dessert island selections, apart from 'the Flam' are the ferociously beautiful collaborations with Joe Mcphee on legend streets one and two.... check them out on the Cadence website!

and yeah..Polly Bradfield, is subtly brilliant  here , she should be as famous as John Zorn , who doesn't to my ears sound entirely comfortable.

Enjoy.

Thanks for this, good to hear it again. Since you are digging Polly, I have 10 minutes of a trio set we did with flautist Carolyn Romberg in the mid 70's, shortly after she switched from piano to violin. Happy to make that available if you are interested, just email details how to get the files to you.

Keep up the good work. Peace.

I remember hearing at one time that this was John Zorn's first professionally recorded session?
