Reissue and remaster of this 1973 album from Frank Lowe with William Parker, Joseph Jarman and "The Wizard", restoring 15 minutes of material thought to have been lost.

Lowe, Frank
Black Beings

Lowe, Frank : Black Beings (ESP)
Label: ESP    
Released in: USA    

"One of the later ESP blowouts, this CD reissue features the powerful tenor of Frank Lowe interacting with Joseph Jarman (heard here on alto and soprano), violinist Leroy Jenkins (operating under the pseudonym of "The Wizard" but quite recognizable), bassist William Parker and drummer Rashid Sinan. Two of the three originals (which include the 25-minute "In Trane's Name") are lengthy and wander a bit, but the intense music is well worth hearing by free-jazz collectors."-Scott Yanow, All Music
