"The first release on Downtown Music Gallery's newly formed DMG ARC label is considered by many fans to be one of the rarest late '60s Euro/Brit avant jazz recordings. Originally released on the BYG associated Goody label in France (in fact the only one of seven Goody releases that was an original release, and not a questionable reissue), the LP has commanded high prices ranging to $100 to $300 from collector's shops and auction web sites, including eBay." "Despite its inconsistencies at the hands of its label, 'Facets of the Univers' is truly a fascinating document of the Pan-African avant-garde captured at a place where European, African, American and West Indian roots merged to create two universal improvisations. What more could one have asked of a single opportunity to record as a leader?" --Clifford Allen, Paris Transatlantic. Features Mongezi Feza (pocket trumpet), Mike Osborne (alto sax), Kenneth Terroade (tenor sax, flute), Harry Miller (bass), Earl Freeman (bass, piano, voice), & Louis Moholo (incidental percussion).
