Frank Foster was playing a street concert from the Jazzmobile in Harlem. He called for a blues in B-flat. A young tenor player began to play "out" from the first chorus, playing sounds that had no relationship to the harmonic progression or rhythmic setting. Foster stopped him. "What are you doing?" "Just playing what I feel. "Well, feel something in B-flat, mother****er"

Fred McDowell- Goin' Down to Louisiana
« on: March 20, 2008, 01:10:22 PM »
I'm wondering if anyone knows what album McDowell's eight minute and 21 seconds version of "Goin' Down to Louisiana" is on. I checked the Wirz discography by hitting Control + F and typing in "Louisiana", but was unable to find it.

It's just one of five previously unissued titles recorded in December 1965 by Alan Bates on that CD. The remaining first appeared on the 1965 Polydor LP 423.249, see Black Lion etc releases at Stefan's page.
