Creative Construction Company-vol 2(muse lp 5097)

This is for the people requesting it at the 'nine sisters' blog... many thanks to them for the gems they've shared.
The 2nd part of a magnificent concert recorded at the 'peace church' Washington square N.Y.C. on may 19 1970.
the recording was supervised by Ornette Coleman, not released though until some 6 years later.

for me this(and vol 1) is a significant milestone in being the most fully realised document of what Braxton ,Jenkins and Smith were on about at this early stage of their careers.
much better recorded than the earlier lp's recorded in Paris for Byg, this concert is one of the gems of the AACM collective discography.
so its a real surprise that this hasn't been reissued more widely, and that it remains so little heard.

beautiful ...
hope you enjoy it...
see the comments for both lame and flac links, I'll be posting the flacs only ,for volume 1 later tonight.
mp3's for volume 1 are at 'nine sisters' linked on the front page.

Hi Sotise, I remember how many marveloous posts You did...but everytime is a new surprise. Heard to part 1 of this concert. I completely agree with You this is a true masterpiece and a cornerstone in post free jazz history. Someone as yet told of the different appreciation and visibility of the AEOC in comparison to CCC. I've just written on another post that Jenkins is in my opinion one of the most overlooked musician of all the so called Chicago School.
Anyway thanks again.
See You LYM

A sack full of thanks for these posts. A pleasure and an education. They are exactly the sort of music I would have avoided before discovering this blog. Thanks again.

a re-up of these would be greatly appreciated. I have searched the web to the best of my ability without finding a reissue. Oh yes indeed, Leroy Jenkins had the chops. msj
