Frank Lowe

The Loweski

This previously unreleased recording features the remaining music from the legendary concert that produced Lowe’s ESP-Disk’s debut as a leader, Black Beings. This recording features Art Ensemble of Chicago saxophonist Joseph Jarman in perhaps his first New York appearance, with the future Cecil Taylor bass and drum team of William Parker and Rashid Sinan and violinist Raymond Lee Cheng (The Wizard) on his only known recording.  High Energy Music in its purest form.


Frank Lowe: Tenor Saxophone
Joseph Jarman: Soprano & Alto Saxophones
Raymond Lee Cheng (The Wizard): Violin
William Parker: Double-Bass
Rashid Sinan: Drums

Press Quotes

"...wonderful interplay between Frank's tenor and the soprano and alto sax of Joseph Jarman – both of whom get plenty of space to work together on the album-length performance. Lowe's tone has that raspy brilliance that always moves us – a sense of soul that's somewhere between Albert Ayler and Archie Shepp – and Jarman really knocks it out of the park as things get moving, hitting these frenzied sounds that are way more intense than anything we heard him record with the Art Ensemble!"
