Utterly obscure 45rpm single featuring jazz organist Larry Young – released on a local New Jersey label – undated, but presumably from his early 70’s ‘Lawrence of Newark’ phase – once dubbed ‘The Coltrane of the Organ’ – Larry Young is fairly well known as far as cult jazz figures go – this recording however, seems virtually unknown – the label tells us that ‘Wild Fire’ is “from the concerto Black Fantasy” – suggesting an album length work, that as far as I can tell, has never seen the light of day…
