This album was released in 1969 and contains live recordings from the "Berlin Jazz Festival" held in Berlin, Germany in 1968. This Japanese version was released in 1981 on the MPS Actual Jazz 1500 series by Teichiku Records. The album was dedicated to some of the great figures who rose to prominence during the chaotic times of the late 1960s, including Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, civil rights icon Martin Luther King, and the president of U.S. John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert. Side A features Wolfgang Dauner, Manfred Schoof, Gerd Dudek, Eberhard Weber, Jurgen Karf, Fred Braceful, who are representing avant-jazz in Germany, and a chorus group. The B-side is funereal jazz with Fred van Hove, Willem Breuker, Cel Overberghe, Kris Wanders, Ed Kroger, Peter Kowald, and Han Bennink. Both are a requiem for the turbulent times, expressed through a flood of chaotic sounds. These are precious works that allow you to experience a sound world permeated by a deep spirituality.A: Psalmus Spel for Choir and Jazz Group
B: Reuiem for Che Guevara, Martin Luther King, John F. and Robert Kennedy
