SOMERVILLE, Mass. - Aug. 2, 2020 - PRLog -- Groundbreaking musicians Mark Harvey and Peter H. Bloom celebrate their new CD, A Rite for All Souls in a livestream Zoom event on Sunday, August 9, 2020 at 7 pm.   Free. Advance registration required.  Use the link at the end of the article to register.

In the August 9 virtual celebration, veteran jazz writer Bob Blumenthal will interview Harvey and Bloom and play excerpts from the CD, a newly discovered recording of a 1971 concert by The Mark Harvey Group (Harvey on brasswinds; Bloom on woodwinds; and their late colleagues Craig Ellis and Michael Standish, percussion).   The disc has been called "extraordinary" (JazzPress Poland), "a potent thing to behold" (AllAboutJazz.com), and "a beautiful musical and historical document" (MusicZoom, Italy).

Donald Elfman (The New York City Jazz Record) wrote, "A Rite for All Souls is a deeply engaging series of improvisations, sound worlds and rich musical expression," while Joseph Neff (The Vinyl District) called the recording "…a fascinating and robust snapshot of street-level jazz and poetry as a vehicle for social commentary and positive change…. everybody plays at a high level throughout."  Jon Ross (Ear Relevant) wrote, "The new album from The Mark Harvey Group, A Rite for All Souls (Americas Musicworks), captures a seminal live show from 1971….an indelible recording that characterizes the immediacy of free-jazz protest music at a consequential time in American history.…a release for the times, bringing the free jazz language of social justice to the fore."

A Rite for All Souls is available from Noteworthy Sheet Music.  Learn more about the August 9 CD celebration and find out how to buy CDs here:
