Another previously-unreleased gem from South African pianist/composer Chris McGregor and his cohorts in '60s UK free jazz.

Mcgregor, Chris Trio
Our Prayer

Mcgregor, Chris Trio: Our Prayer (Fledg'ling)
Label: Fledg'ling    
Released in: Great Britain    

"The Fledg'ling campaign to document Chris McGregor's Witchseason recordings from the late 1960s early 1970s comes to an end with the release of Our Prayer a magical, previously unreleased trio set focusing on McGregor's piano playing. Accompanying Chris McGregor are the Blue Note's Louis Moholo on drums and Barre Phillips on double bass.

Our Prayer was produced by Joe Boyd and engineered by John Wood at Sound Techniques studio in London during the same sessions that produced the Septet Up To Earth album. Both records were planned for release in 1969 before being shelved as the McGregor group morphed into the spectacular big band - the Brotherhood of Breath - and all energies were transferred to recording the Brotherhood's debut album.

Our Prayer was culled from the same sessions that produced the also never-released Up To Earth in 1969 and was produced by Joe Boyd and engineered by John Wood at Sound Techniques studio."-Fledgling
