Image: 1616402 World’s Experience Orchestra’s first album was recorded in and around Boston, in the mid 1970s and
committed to vinyl in miniscule press runs by a visionary, bassist/composer/arranger John Jamyll
Jones. Jones is a magical type, who communicates with his instrument, his ensembles, and jazz’s
ancient lineage in a manner so profound that his late-‘70s album are out of time with jazz’s trajectory,
but timeless when presented today. By the late ’90s the music of World’s Experience Orchestra was
circulating throughout the collections of esoteric jazz fans, the likes of Gerald “Jazzman” Short and
Gilles Peterson, who played “The Prayer” for those, the Coltrane-enthralled searching for something
new, something different. Something spiritual and honest.
Peterson first offered to reissue “The Prayer,” as part of an anthology he was putting together with
Los Angeles reissue label Ubiquity Records and that, to date, is the only official issue of any of
Jones’ music. “I knew it was going to happen, but I didn’t know when,” says Jones of the road to
seeing his music re-issued. “It’s 35 years or more now, and I’ve been waiting for this, and I’m quite
sure I’m not the only one.”

Includes a download card to WAV files of
the entire album and a digital booklet.
