Recorded 2-24-68 at a rehearsal gallery named “True Creation From Vibration” on 3rd St. in Manhattan, near Slugs. Sonny called this band, βThe Depth Probersβ and the band rehearsed every cheap jerseys day for a year and a half β ten, twelve asany hours a day. Many great players stopped in to join them; however, this band never played a gig.
At the time, Paul Smith played some with Albert Ayler and Pharoah Sanders. Juma was developing the Aboriginal Music Society. Most notably, however, this line-up recorded several cuts for the great Arhoolie Records album, Manhattan Egos.
This recording was done with two microphones into an old Wollensak reel-to-reel machine, probably during the day. “Weβd come in, put on a pot of soup and start playing. Each of us bring wholesale mlb jerseys in some vegetablesβ¦ it was a lean time.”
