180g Double Vinyl Pressed in Germany with Deluxe Packaging!

From the outset of his career with Ornette Coleman, through his work with pianist Keith Jarrett, his own Liberation Music Orchestra and collaborations with the likes of Paul Motian, Hampton Hawes, Chet Baker, Carlos Paredes and Ginger Baker, bassist Charlie Haden has always given the spiritual component of music greater importance than its technical considerations.

Haden's finest work has always focused on the most intimate, humanistic principles: freedom, justice, quality. In pianist Hank Jones, Haden encounters a collaborator and fellow traveler whose musical instincts are every inch as elegant and refined as his own. And in the rich public domain of materials which make up Steal Away, Haden and Jones take on an oral (and moral) tradition of music that has been inspiring listeners since before the time of the underground railroad. For the most part, Haden and Jones downplay their jazz stylings--"We Shall Overcome" being a joyous exception--in favor of simple expressive declamations, imparting a timeless feel to each performance.

These solemn hymns, spirituals and folk songs performed by bassist Charlie Haden and pianist Hank Jones were recorded at Radio Canada Studio B in Montreal, Canada June 29 & 30, 1994. Steal Away was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Peformance, Individual or Group. "Go Down, Moses" was nominated for a Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Solo.

"...Bassist Charlie Haden and pianist Hank Jones perform a variety of spirituals, hymns and folk songs as duets. The traditional music (which includes such tunes as "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "Sometimes I Feel like a Motherless Child" and "We Shall Overcome") are all performed respectfully and with reverence. These melodic yet subtly swinging interpretations hold one's interest throughout and reward repeated listenings." -

Recorded on 180g heavy-weight vinyl to ensure quality sound, packaged in gatefold cover, and covered by premium protective vinyl outer sleeve.

The “Play 33 1/3 LP Series” features masterpiece albums released in the '90s converted for the first time world-wide to analog Long Playing record. The album cover and package created after months of graphic work and processes by hand enhanced its excellence and to ensure the record’s superb sound quality, the German MMP, who undertook the record production of EMI Germany and Universal, utilized a heavy weight 180g vinyl LP to contain the sound. Khiov who was in charge of the planning and production of many LP miniature series took charge of the album cover production spending 6 months to create a masterpiece.

This project was highly scrutinized passing rigid testing at the factory in Germany. Even the performers themselves had not been able to put their hands on the LP version of their own albums as their home country had not produced them. The LPs produced by this project certainly have become must-have items by LP lovers all around the world.

In the age where faster and more convenient is thought to be better, the increase in demand for the retro vinyl LP worldwide is clearly attributed to the satisfaction from the sound offered by analog products impossible to be replicated by CD and digital products and the delight of touching, feeling, and possessing this masterpiece-like large artwork. Furthermore, LP records have both rarity and history that increase their value over time and serve as an attractive factor for collectors.
