Reissue of the 1964 release of this incredible yet short-lived NY free jazz ensemble, one of the first ESP issues, and including a recitation from Amiri Baraka.

New York Art Quartet

New York Art Quartet (ESP)
Label: ESP    
Released in: USA    

"Roswell Rudd assembled the newly formed New York Quartet for an afternoon recording session at Bell Sound Studios in midtown Manhattan. They were joined by a small, youthful appearing individual, the poet Amiri Baraka. Their engineer was the late Art Crist, an accomplished pianist. I was introduced to Lewis Worrell, Amiri Baraka and John Tchicai. The group was short lived. I heard them again 40 years later, when they reassembled for a concert at the South Street Seaport in New York City, opening for Sonic Youth at the invitation of Thurston Moore. Lewis Worrell, who had vanished from the scene, was replaced on bass by Reggie Workman."-Bernard Stollman
