Recorded live in Eindhoven, Holland on June 22, 1979, this presents 3/4ths of the late 70s Blue Notes with guest fire-music tenor player (and was there ever a player who wasn't at least as deserving of being called a fire-breather than Wright? I don't think so!). They all blend really well and this is a scorching show that still retains a real sense of swing. The sound quality is very vibrant and live; it's not a magnificent recording, but you can hear everything going on and its definitely 'good enough' by far.

"Ogun is extremely proud to present a previously unreleased recording documenting a one-off collaboration between members of The Blue Notes and tenor sax giant The Reverend Frank Wright. Recorded live in Eindhoven, Holland on what was meant to be the opening night of The Blue Notes’ Dutch tour in 1979, the collaboration was spawned by the unavoidable absence of pianist Chris McGregor and prompted by Louis Moholo-Moholo’s experience of playing alongside Frank in Peter Brotzmann’s Alarm. The tour of Holland proved prolific for The Blue Notes - another Dutch date is set for future release on Ogun - but this meeting of musical titans could not be left in the vaults. Great empathetic performances and an engrossing listen."
