Thumb Up on Post
It's one of those albums caught in the moment live in Paris France Nov. 3rd 1971. Sonny Grey with Mal Waldron and Kenny Clarke + some local musicians (more rocker) but were into the setting

Mal Waldron and Kenny Clarke need no intro, their work stands for them self and on most everyone's radar....

Sonny Grey Jamaican jazz trumpeter in Groups:
Daniel Humair Soultet, Septet Matchi-Oul, Clarke Boland Big Band and played with Dexer Gordon once that I know of .. Most of records can found were mid-60's and early-70's stuff and then he gone off the radar don't know why..

Alain Hatot tenor sax and flute and a member of Rhesus O along with Alain Monier, Francis Moze, Guy Pedersen, Jean-Paul Asseline, Serge Lenoir, Thierry Blanchard with Rhesus O on Epic [EPC 64560] LP 1971 a crate diggers Psychedelic Rock classics gem so he was not one sided Jazz Blues, R&B, Bop shame he never on anyones radar...

Gus Nemeth, double bass aka A. Nemeth from the rock LP "Rusty Nails " on ‎Warner Bros. Records [56 441] LP US 1978 and is never on anyones radar... oldhippierick ✌

Thanks Onx', interesting combination of musicians with different backgrounds. Quite unusual context to hear Kenny Clarke.
Gus Nemeth can be seen on a short video accompanying Keith Jarret, with Aldo Romano on drums in 1969: http://www.ina.fr/video/I07206245

Great recording. Actually I like the versions of Journey Without End and The Fire Now better than those of the studio album with Steve Lacy. -John
