Released in 1966 by the New York Contemporary Five, a group led by Don Cherry, Archie Shepp and John Tchicai and featuring J.C. Moses and Don Moore, who were exploring new forms of jazz in New York in the early 1960s. In addition to material recorded in New York in 1963, the album contains one track recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in the same year. In addition to B1, which draws on Moses' drumming, which contains many elements of African music, the album has a breath of Avant-jazz, with revelations by Coleman and Cecil Taylor developed through the technique of collective improvisation. A3 and B3 were also performed live in Copenhagen on the 'Recorded 'Live' at Jazzhus Montmartre Vol. 2' album, but with a completely different groove. Please listen and compare.
