Imaginary Landscapes

Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 16

Classic electronic and percussive compositions by John Cage – performed here with sounds from a wide range of sources – including drums, cymbals, radios, turntables, and a number of other recordings! The performance is the first to actually bring together all of the different strands of Cage's Imaginary Landscape compositions – written between 1939 and 1952, and still light years ahead of their time – beautifully recorded here, at a level that's far greater than might have been the case in the 50s! Direction is by Jan Williams, and the performance features the Maelstrom Percussion Ensemble, plus assorted artists working turntables, radios, and other source recordings!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Philips (France), 1967. New Copy

Round Goal
Delmark, 2013. New Copy
Keefe Jackson's an artist who seems to change the name of his group with each new recording – and for good reason too, given that every album has a very unique, personal feel! This date's a live recording done at the Jazzwerkstatt Festival – and it features Keefe working with a few key ... CD
El Ray Criollo
West Side Latino, 1966. New Copy
Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz ... CD
Right On! Ahi Na Ma!
All Art/West Side Latino, Early 70s. New Copy
A great little record by Pete Rodriguez – one that seems to post-date his boogaloo work, rolling in more of a 70s salsa vein – still with plenty of wonderfully percussion numbers and soulful vocals! The record was recorded for the small All-Art label in New York, eventually reissued by ... CD
