PRIMA MATERIA "Peace on Earth (music of John Coltrane)" (US,1994)

a KNITTING FACTORY release

Top NY free-impro-exp-jazz musicians leading by COLTRANE`s drummer RASHIED ALI visit some of His greatest compositions originated from the free, trippy, spiritual period...and it is a difficult bet the one they win. They revitalize loyally the original sound, putting, at the same time, under the surface of these masterpieces their own strong, attitude. The project contains two saxophones, two basses, JOHN ZORN (on two tracks), and of course Ali`s drums. The free spirit blooms worthily of its creator, the wide horizons of compositions allow - if not demand - both the respectful and daring treatment...PRIMA MATERIA approach with adventurous & wild playing the shivering lamentation of John`s art. In their occasion, knowlegde, love, energy, living memory, time continuity...is all one.
