John Carter, Bobby Bradford, Tom Williamson & Bruz Freeman recorded January 16th, 1969 in Los Angeles. (reissue, remastered)

This was the debut on disc of the John Carter - Bobby Bradford Quartet (then under the cooperative name New Art Jazz Ensemble), and captures their marvelous cohesiveness, moral vibrancy, and quiet determination in equal measure.

Subsequent recordings (and there were precious few of them) may have widened our view of their talents slightly, but didn't necessarily alter any early assessment of their unique capabilities.

Their music was fresh and vital from the git-go, and remains so.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
