Reissue of Wright's Seminal 1967 Album on Vinyl LP!

Reissue, originally released in 1967. Frank Wright returned to the studio in May 1967 to make his second album using a quintet of players little-known at the time but now legends to free-jazz cognoscenti. Trumpeter Jacques Coursil, who almost made an album for ESP-Disk himself, went on to the greatest fame of the players (besides Wright); alto saxophonist Arthur Jones was not recorded nearly as often as his talents deserved; Steve Tintweis's stint playing with Albert Ayler raised the young bassist's profile; Muhammad Ali was Coltrane drummer Rashied Ali's brother. Together they raised the roof on a free-jazz marathon that still stands as Wright's magnum opus.

Your Prayer finds Wright refining the bag his solos come from, yet maintaining a firm hold on the ecstatic free-blues shout that makes up most of his solo language...Your Prayer is a rather lengthy slab of high-energy grit, but its unified forward and upward motion make for a firmly rooted sonic liberation.
-Clifford Allen, All About Jazz
Rather intense at times, these emotional performances...still sound groundbreaking three decades later.
-Scott Yanow,, 4.5/5 stars
