Rashied Ali - Lausanne 2008

Here's the first of two posts dedicated to the late great drummer Rashied Ali, who died on August 12, 2009.

To read more about him, I suggest the two obituaries printed in the NY Times and The Guardian.

Let me just add that even if Ali had recorded nothing but "Interstellar Space" with John Coltrane, he'd be one of the greats in my book!

AUUUM, i am too late here. As well as with Harry Miller BBc recordings;( -- Do you have Sean Bergin & Radio Freedom All Stars - Jazz For Freedom (1989), ubu? Anyway, thanks for re-upload all that "last chances", I grabbed some goodies. I case of Bergin & Friends from 2001, I only yet listened to Moholo Kwartet, and it seems to be quintet according to my ears - there is piano player aside sax, trumpet and bass. Misha Mengelberg?
