Sunny Murray - An Even Break (Never Give A Sucker)

Sunny Murray could well be the most important drummer in free jazz. He was the drummer on Albert Ayler's Spiritual Unity and he used to hang out a lot with Cecil Taylor. He was, and is, a great and accomplished drummer and an important band leader. He recorded a total of three records for BYG Actuel, of which this is the second one. This is number 32 out of 53. Spoken word is present, a lot of great horns, crazy drumming and some African influences.

Great, great drummer and a total hero for releasing under BYG, because BYG = the shit. He released his most famous records under ESP-Disk, pretty much the only label that released some free jazz in the 60s in America. Spiritual Unity came out on ESP as well.
