Freedom Rhythm & Sound


180 pgs.
Soul Jazz Records Publishing

This is a unique collection of cover artwork of revolutionary jazz music between 1965-83. Concurrent with the explosive counter cultural revolution and US rock scene of the 1960s, Sun Ra, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, and Art Ensemble of Chicago and others took control of their own work by recording, releasing and distributing their own music. The record sleeves of this era are as iconic and historically unique as the music itself and a striking reflection of the time. 'Freedom, Rhythm and Sound' is the first ever collection of this fascinating goldmine of album art. It includes a large introduction contextualising the music and artwork as well as features on many of the people involved. Other musicians featured include Rashied Ali, Steve Reid, Mary Lou Williams, Horace Tapscott, Lloyd McNeil, Tribe, The Last Poets, The Pharaohs, Philip Cohran, Black Artists Group and many others.
