Fitz Gore & The Talismen - Soundnitia LP
This is the first ever reissue of the lost debut LP by Jamaican tenor saxophone player Fitz Gore and his experimental group The Talismen from 1975. The work was originally released on Gore's GorBra label and delivers an introspective, sensitive form of Spiritual Jazz. Recorded live in West Germany, the personnel are "Shepherd" Fitz Gore with Ulrich Kurth (Piano), Gérard Ebbo (Bass), Philippe ZobdaQuitman (Drums) and Lamont Hampton (Congas). The LP includes versions of John Coltrane's "Dahomey Dance" and the Horace Silver classic "Song For My Father." The reissue was carefully remastered in 2021 and features the original cover design with a two page insert of the original notes, completed by the inclusion of Fitz`s poem "Sketches of Pain."
