Here is a repeat of our ESP-Disk’ label sampler show. Lotsa crazy free jazz from the early 1960s. Also underground folk-rock and protest music. The label is currently undergoing a rebirth with a healthy reissue/repackage programme and many new releases besides. To better communicate what I feel about this astonishing non-profit label, which was pivotal in documenting a side of the New York jazz and underground scene at a time when no-one else was apparently interested, I offer this drawing of a spindly fellow and a spiral motif. From about this time last August. Playlist is here. Voot!
