MARION BROWN picture
Marion Brown (September 8, 1931 – October 18, 2010) was a jazz alto saxophonist and ethnomusicologist. He is most well-known as a member of the 1960s avant-garde jazz in New York City, playing alongside musicians such as John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, and John Tchicai. He performed on Coltrane's landmark 1965 album Ascension.

Brown was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1931. He joined the Army in 1953 and in 1956 went to Clark College to study music. In 1960 Brown left Atlanta and studied pre-law at Howard University for two years. He moved to New York in 1962 where he befriended poet Amiri Baraka and many musicians such as Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Sun Ra, Pharaoh Sanders, Paul Bley and Rashied Ali. He appeared on several important albums from this period such as Shepp's Fire Music and New Wave in Jazz, but most notably John Coltrane's Ascension.

MARION BROWN Afternoon of a Georgia Faun

Album · 1970 · Avant-Garde Jazz
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Sean Trane
While The ECM label holds a lot of prestige in my eyes, I have two main gripes about their overall output: a good deal of their releases are a bit too close to new-agey elevator music, or another consequent part is very close to obtuse dissonant music approaching music concrete. Needless to say that with Braxton’s presence on the present album, Afternoon is very much in the second category, this despite Chick Corea or Bernie Maupin’s inputs.

Don’t start running away either, because if I spoke of dissonance, it’s still quite bearable, because the music is quite reflective and descriptive (of the Georgia Faun soundscapes), and you won’t have to deal with the raging madness of Peter Brotzmann’s sonics. It’s also easy to dismiss this kind of album as “something done 100 times before”, but the album was released in 1970, which means that it is more of a groundbreaker in the genre than a consolidating block. It’s rather difficult for me to describe the two lengthy pieces (one aside), because I somewhat lack the tools of comprehension and the patience for this type of music. Of course, it’s not hard to imagine a deep forest where different species of animals are occupying the territory like a woodpecker via percussions, other birds via the wind instrument’s squeaks and some mammals ‘s growls via Braxton and Brown’s sax squeals. Maybe extra kudos should be given to the musicians for not taking the easy way out by playing on creek/river, rain or wind sounds, but thinking about it now, it might have made the album more accessible. Which I’m sure was not the intended goal.

Here is a nice slice of 70's jazz you don't hear much about, Marion Brown's Sweet Earth Flying, in my mind,this music is a direct decedent of the mid 60's free bop albums from Miles Davis, a looseness to the music, an elastic style that bends the rules, but doesn't quite break them, the music never ventures too far into avant garde territory, Muhal Richard Abrams and Paul Bley alternate between acoustic and electric piano, I think they really drive this album, Brown has a unique style and sound on alto and soprano sax, he enters in to the tunes in a shy way, understated, but gradually builds up momentum in each performance, Sweet Earth Flying was inspired by poet Jean Toomer, none of Toomer's poetry is actually used like on Geechee Recollections, but the music is what I like, Sweet Earth Flying was a nice treat, I will investigate more of Marion Brown.
