Urban Sax - Live In Pori 1984

Amazing live performance by the notorious masked horn music-performance group from France headed by Gilbert Altman. The line-up of this 1984 performance in Pori, Finland consists of 12 tenor sax players, 13 alto sax players, 3 baritone sax players, 2 vibraphonists, a choir of 8, 1 bassist, 2 guitarists, 2 gong players and two dancers. The raw sound of this live recording brings out the most from their hypnotic, repetitive, epic sound and the fact that it was recorded in a church adds a great reverberant depth to it. Essential listening! 2016 cd on the Circle-run Ektro Records.
