Album Notes
This three volume set is a collection of cassette recordings of the Juice Quartet from 1970 to 1979. Most of the cassettes were recorded by Bill "Segun” Edelen using an early portable tape recorder with a built-in microphone. They have been digitally re-mastered for this series.
This music is the early compositional work of Alan Glover aka Akinjorin Omolade aka Juice. Throughout this nine year period and throughout these recordings, the pianist is Kasa Allah Mubarak aka Stanley Wiley. The bassist is either William Parker or Richard Williams. On most tracks, the drummer is Abu Kali. When the congas of Juma Sultan are heard the drummer is Ali Abuwi, (only on the performance of "Of Things Green" is the drummer Mitchell Bechet featured).
These recordings represent an important historical documentation of the quartet. Another surviving recording is the sound track to Juice's film "Birth”. The making of the sound track was coincidentally the "birth" of the Juice Quartet. Other recorded material includes a two-hour live session broadcast by Columbia University's radio station WKCR in 1978, a featured appearance on the CBS TV program "Channel 2 The People" June 2, 1973. There are also more than twelve hours of studio tracks recorded at the now defunct "Studio We” in New York City. These recordings and other live performances of the Juice Quartet at other loft jazz venues including Studio Rivbea and the Ladies Fort are being retrieved, cataloged and restored by ethnomusicologist Michael Heller and Juma Sultan the musician, sound engineer and archivist. More of The Juice Quartet will be released soon!
The 60’s and 70's were an exciting era of change and growth. Political awareness changed, the music changed and lots of folk even changed their names No matter how you have changed, here's hoping that you enjoy the listening.
