See's To Exist show - Sweet Earth Records Special with exclusive interviews - show 105 - 20/11/15

Playing tracks by

Marion Brown, David Wertman & The Sun Ensemble, Sun Ra, Amina Claudine Myers and Stephen McCraven.

Chart positions

This show was 100th in the global jazz chart.

I'm very excited to present the thoroughest (and possibly only) feature about the short lived record label Sweet Earth Records on the internet today. Within, you will hear interviews with figures associated with each release that the label put out between 1977 and 1979. I was very fortunate to speak with Amina Claudine Myers, Ahmed Abdullah, Stephen McCraven and John Sprague about the label and albums by Marion Brown, David Wertman & The Sun Ensemble, Sun Ra, Amina Claudine Myers, Stephen McCraven, and Ed Blackwell's unreleased first LP as leader. I must send a huge thanks to Meryl Lynne for making this possible! I hope that listeners will enjoy and learn about a buried treasure...

Well done, See! You ought to try to edit and write this up and make it available via Downbeat, Jazz Times or one of your UK jazz publications.

Thanks Dr Jazz! Very interesting idea. I wouldn't know the first thing about transforming a radio show into an article (though I feel I'd probably achieve a result I'd be happy with), but mainly I don't really know anyone at the web/media sites.. would you write the article up first or pitch the idea to them via email first?

Really really great. Thank you for sharing these interviews. The label logo is also reprinted larger on the label of the Marion Brown solo LP, can be seen on discogs for those interested in identifying the landscape.

Glad you enjoyed it! And thanks for expanding the knowledge.. Yes, the logo is larger/less cropped on Marion Brown's LP.. which makes it a bit easier to contextualise..
