John Tchicai and young guitarist Pierre Dorge played in 1969 at the old MONTMARTRE JAZZCLUB in concert with Han Bennink, Misha Mengelberg and Hugh Steinmetz. and since then they worked together again and again. John became a kind of guru for Pierre. During the years they did many albums for SteepleChase with sidemen as Billy Hart, NHOP, Johnny Dyani, Harry Beckett, Hamid Drake, Marilyn Mazur a.o. John was a member of NJO and guided the musicians with his enigmatic and powerfull playing.
This new album is a Hommage a Tchicai. Music that John played in the jungle. You can still hear John in the music.
This program can also be heard on many of the upcoming concerts.
