Eastern Man Alone

CD (Item 538735) ESP, 1967 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.60 5

An incredible album by avant saxophonist Charles Tyler – and one of his most unique albums ever! Tyler's playing here in a wild setting – alto sax mixed with three stringed instruments, one cello and two basses – which makes for a very unusual sound. The album's got a deep, dark soul – very different sounding than other records on ESP at the time – and it also stretches out with some cosmic influences that don't always show up in Tyler's later work. The whole thing's brilliantly beautiful – with a blend of sounds that's unlike anything else we can describe, and which has always made the album one of our favorites in the ESP catalog. Cuts include "Le-Roi", "Cha-Lacy's Out East", and "Eastern".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s!

These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch ... CD
