Rashied Ali Quartet - Closing number - 1972

Rashied Ali
Carlos Ward
Dave Burrell

Norris Sirone Jones

Here is the final selection by The Rashied Ali Quartet, taken from an appearance on my weekly 1972 TV show, The Jazz Set. I am trying out various methods of converting and transferring these shows for the blog,but I'm afraid they either come out sans audio or with an annoying delayed video. As soon as I figure it out, I will re-post all this material in sync. Until then, you can always close your eyes and listen. 

Next week I will start posting clips from another Jazz Set show. This one featuring the Jimmy Heath Sextet, with Curtis Fuller, Kenny Barron, Herbie Lewis, Tootie Heath, and Ntume. I will solve the sync problem first.

Stay tuned.
