“Songmy” in the title is a reference to “Son My”, a village in South Vietnam, the location of the mass murder, rape and mutilation of some 400 unarmed civilians by the US Army its Vietnam campaign in 1968.[3] The material on the album is heavily socio-political in tone, drawing on high-profile contemporary events like the Kent State shootings; the Tate–LaBianca murders; the Vietnam war; and the then escalating American protests against the war. Mimaroğlu used his influence as an executive producer for Atlantic Records to produce an unusually high-budget album of avant-garde music. The music is a fusion of post-bop jazz with musique concrete, salted with poetry and text fragments, and united by a generally anti-war message. The format is that of a montage, in which there are not always obvious breaks between one section, or one subsection and the next. In the original Atlantic release the double-album jacket included a collage of material drawn from various books and newspapers, which paralleled the tone of the music. - Wiki
