Brotherhood of Breath created one of the defining recordings of ethno-jazz with this album; with an expansive use of African-inspired melodies, they trace textures which culminate in an ecstatic peak on "Night Poem," the album's 20-minute standout track. Not to forget, the album is driven by the organic pulse of the rhythm section - bassist Harry Miller and drummer Louis Moholo, no less - who will be names familiar to fans of British free jazz. This album comes highly recommended to fans of Don Cherry, Afro-beat sounds, and the Sun Ra Arkestra.

Profile: Big-band created in the late 1960s by South African pianist/composer Chris McGregor.

This is in fact Chris McGregor's second band in the country. The first was formed in 1968. They gave relatively few performances - about six - but were voted second only to Ellington in Melody Maker's poll. This band was formed in June 1970 and gave its first performance in the same month at the Notre Dame Hall, London. It basically comprises The Chris McGregor Group, plus musicians from London with whom he enjoys working, and from them Chris has made his present band.

The Brotherhood of Breath was a big-band created by Chris McGregor at the end of the 1960s, essentially an extension of McGregor's previous band The Blue Notes.

Somewhat of a legendary album amongst collectors of British jazz and fusion, the LP was originally released in the '70s and in early 2002 finally became reissued by the Italian label Akarma. Enlisted on the session were the talents of a group of extraordinary musicians from the free jazz, progressive rock, and improvisation scenes.

Brotherhood of Breath is a very different kind of big band from Charles Tolliver's, emerging as it does from the mixed parentage of South African townships music, 1960s free-jazz and the tone-poetry of Duke Ellington. This is the band's first album, made in 1971 by pianist Chris McGregor and his London-based South African exiles, along with then-newcomers to the UK scene such as young saxophonists John Surman and Mike Osborne.
