Dance of the Love Ghosts

Part of John Carter’s serial compositions about the beginnings of the African experience in America. The notes for this song were:

Teeming thousands passed through the Castles of Ghana, fading shadows of broken lives, broken families, broken hearts and loves that could never be mended. The ghosts of those lost loved ones dance in eternal rhythm to the song of a desperate people who would never again view their homeland.


Bobby Bradford (cornet), Benny Powell (trombone, bass trombone), John Carter (clarinet), Marty Ehrlich (bass clarinet, flute), Terry Jenoure (violin), Don Preston (synthesizer), Fred Hopkins (bass), Andrew Cyrille (drums).

Recorded at Sorcerer Sound, New York, New York, November 1986.
