Influential 1979 Album on Vinyl LP!
Part of ECM's New Audiophile Vinyl Series: Luminessence!

Luminessence, ECM's new audiophile vinyl reissue series, is a kaleidoscope, shedding light on the jewels of the label's deep catalogue in elegant, high-quality editions. The hallmarks of the series: original and evocative music, imaginatively played and sensitively produced. The recordings underline the scope and variety of ECM's world of sound and the LPs are presented in different formats.

The series features albums that have changed perceptions of creative music-making, albums now heralded as classics.

Don Cherry, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden and Ed Blackwell came together to celebrate the work of mentor Ornette Coleman, but the repertoire of their Old and New Dreams quartet soon blossomed into a project of much wider scope, addressing also the musical experiences the players had made individually in their travels around the world. As well as superlative versions of Ornette's "Lonely Woman" and "Open or Close," this highly influential album, now regard as a classic of new jazz, includes pieces by Cherry and Blackwell inspired by African music, Redman's enigmatic "Orbit of La-Ba," and Haden's impressionistic "Song for the Whales." Recorded in Oslo in August 1979 and produced by Manfred Eicher, this vinyl reissue includes new liner notes providing historical context and background information.

Stirring music in a setting that always brought out the best in each of these musicians.
-Scott Yanow,, 4.5/5 stars
