Marion Brown - Porto Nova (1968)


Dynamic, energetic, slightly melancholic free jazz from one of the genre's finest and sadly most overlooked alto saxophonists. The production on this record is a little weird, mixing Hans Bennink's admittedly excellent drumming ahead of everything else, but the quality of the music more than makes up for it. An oft-ignored classic.
