McGregor, Chris - Sea Breezes: Solo Piano - Live in Durban 1987 CD

SKU 39-CD-FLED-3081
This is a total surprise to anyone and everyone who followed the career and releases of Chris; this is a previously unreleased and also previously unknown solo album from very late in his life.

"Fledg'ling Records proudly presents the long-overdue CD release of this remarkable solo performance from 1987 by Chris McGregor. Sea Breezes was recorded during an emotional visit to his homeland by the great South African composer and pianist. McGregor played "an energetic mixture of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Sun Ra, but always retained a unique feel due to his South African influences and the intelligent arrangements." Over the last four years, Fledg'ling has been collaborating with the Chris McGregor estate to reissue his most important albums and, through a series of unreleased recordings, help to reveal the full extent of his musical activities: from the small-scale trio improvisations through to the majestic large ensemble works of the mighty Brotherhood Of Breath. Carefully mastered from the original master tapes, Sea Breezes is an exciting opportunity to hear McGregor's solo readings of repertoire familiar from the acclaimed final Brotherhood Of Breath album Country Cooking."
