Sunny Murray, a jazz expatriate, settled in Paris in 1968, and the album features a multinational ensemble with French, Jamaican, American, and South African musicians. “Big Chief” showcases dense, collective improvisations with a distinctive “acoustical” swing rhythm. The album’s first side features a lively piece called “Hilarious Paris,” characterized by repetition and powerful ensemble dynamics. The second side presents a more pastoral, yet tense, quintet arrangement with flute, cello, and rhythm. The album’s uniqueness lies in its blending of energetic, whimsical, and romantic elements, making it a priceless and captivating record.
