Sowing Records present a reissue of Ken McIntyre’s Year Of The Iron Sheep, originally released in 1962. Recorded intermittently between June and September 1962, Year Of The Iron Sheep was Ken McIntyre’s third album, the fruit of various studio sessions featuring three different personnel line-ups. Here the great multi-instrumentalist, mostly known for his collaborations with the likes of Eric Dolphy, Archie Shepp, Cecil Taylor, and Charlie Haden, is heard on alto sax and flute while the rhythm section variously features pianist Jacki Byard, bassists Ron Carter and Ahmed Abdul-Malik, drummers Ben Riley, Louis Hayes, and Warren Smith. An amazing cast of players for a great and yet forgotten post-bop gem. Clear vinyl.
