Live at Irving Plaza
Ellen Christi (vocals), Lisa Sokolov (vocal), Rahn Burton (piano), William Parker (bass), Tom Bruno (drums). Recorded live at Irving Plaza in NYC, 6/28/84. Christi is one of the unsung avant-vocal stylists of the last couple decades and this is one of the more strange and lost Soul Note albums (it also ranks #271 on B. Coley's all-time list of post-WWII recordings by non-defunct humans in the acoustic realm, which ought to be worth something). Ellen has performed with Jemeel Moondoc, Bruno is currently working with Sabir Mateen & Test, and William Parker occasionally records a session or two.
