Import!  First time on CD.  Recorded in 1964.

The unique quartet recordings by Archie Shepp and Bill Dixon. Their only known recorded works together consist of the studio quartet album made for Savoy in October 1962 - presented here on CD for the first time ever.  As a bonus to this interesting album, we have added Archie Shepp’s only other recording session for the Savoy label, with the New York Contemporary Five including Don Cherry on one track; and Bill Dixon’s second recording session, in a septet format.  For approximately 18 months (from the fall of 1961 to June 1963), Archie Shepp and Bill Dixon co-led a group that varied in size between a quartet, quintet and sextet, depending on the gig. They mostly played coffee houses and small theaters in Greenwich Village, and travelled to Scandinavia in July 1962 for a series of concerts at the socialist-leaning First International Youth Festival in Helsinki.
