Remastered edition with one bonus track of the 1977 Ogun LP, bringing trumpeter Mark Charig together with Keith Tippett on organ & keys, and Ann Winter on voice & bell.
Charig / Tippett / Winter
Released in: Great Britain
Remastered edition of this 1977 Ogun LP, augmented by one bonus track. The recordings were made in St. Stephen's Church in Bristol, adding a beautiful resonance to these impressive improvisations. Tippett spends much of his time on the church's organ, an incredible contrast in sounds that adds massive depth to Charig's virtuoso playing. Ann Winter sings wordless vocals on several of the tracks, bridging jazz and rock with a passionate approach, alternating lovely and offbeat vocalizations perfect for the unusual orchestration of the album. This new edition includes the almost 8 minute "The Trio Gets Lost In The Magic Forest", a dark journey more sound oriented than the rest of the release, an epic work happily rescued from obscurity.
