This show was 45th in the global jazz chart.
Vortex Records was a very short-lived jazz subsidiary of Atlantic Records which released just 14 LPs between1968-1970. It was a label which was very experimental at the time , with an ethos of mixing post-bop jazz with rock, soul, classical and world music. Several of the artists were sidemen for Atlantic Records stalwart Herbie Mann. It gave the debuts as "leader" for Chick Corea, Keith Jarrett, Byard Lancaster, Steve Marcus , and Sonny Sharrock. I hope you enjoy this special and unusual set.
