A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble -- material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing -- much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ever heard from Cohran -- almost in Sun Ra Arkestra territory at times, given the group's out-there playing, and bold collective action! The lineup is similar to other Cohran recordings from the time -- Phil on cornet, Henry Gibson on congas, Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, and Aaron Dodd on tuba -- a group that's a wonderful bridge between the two important Chicago generations headed by Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire. Armageddon is an extended piece, divided up into five different musical acts -- conceived by Cohran in the late 50s, and recorded here in 1968 -- with some great help from The Spencer Jackson Family on the leadoff track "Motherless Child". Other titles include "Creation Of The Beast", "The Warning", "The Window", and "Armageddon" -- a clear reference to the power of the atom bomb!
