Has anyone herd of Byard Lancaster ?

  • Has anyone herd of Byard Lancaster ?

    Hey , has any one herd of the Saxophonist Byard Lancaster ? He was a sidemen for Drummer Sunny Murray on an album on ESP-DISK ( I haven't herd it yet but I know its some pretty wild stuff ). He also made some fine recordings of his own in France around the early ' 70's where he first utilized his " A Love Supreme meets the Sex Machine" idea . His album Funny Funky Rib Crib is just that funk and danceable but is still pretty avant garde. Does any body know of any other albums by him ?

    also It's Not Up To Us, which i was just listening to. This album has some early Sonny Sharrock on it.

  • I'm also a fan of an album simply called "Us" recorded in France in 1973. It's actually an LP and a 7" single on a little label called Palm Records (same label as Mother Earth. It's a trio recording with Sylvain Marc on Fender bass and Steve Mccallon drums.
