The sixties were a turbulent time, a time of the Vietnam war when thousands of us in opposition to the war took to the streets. One chant – Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today? – remains embedded in my consciousness. The assassination of John Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. The blossoming of a counter culture, a social revolution, a time when artists used their art forms as affirmation of rebellion. A time of important change in jazz and improvised music.


The recordings in this program were released on Dutch Fontana and cover a period of three years from 1963 though 1966 and feature the music of some of the leading figures of the musical revolution: Marion Brown, Grachan Moncur, Dave Burrell, Archie Shepp, John Tchicai, Don Cherry, Paul Bley, Dollar Brand, Roswell Rudd and Milford Graves among them.
