Limited Edition CD- release with 12-page booklet. 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 traveled to Scandinavia in July 1962 for a series of concerts at the socialist-leaning First International Youth Festival in Helsinki. Back in the United States, they were featured in a regular series of radio performances on New York's WBAI. However, unless any unknown radio broadcast or live European performance surfaces, their only recorded works together consist of the studio quartet album made for Savoy in October 1962, presented on this CD EDITION. Archie Shepp's only other recording session for the Savoy label, including Don Cherry on one track, and Bill Dixon's second recording session, in a septet format, have been added as a bonus. 14 TRACKS. TOTAL TIME: 73:43. INCLUDES 12-PAGE BOOKLET.
