CTI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
Beautiful work from Randy Weston – and a unique electric session from the 70s!

An early full length album by Randy Weston – one that mostly features tunes by other composers, all given a slightly modern twist at the piano!

Amazing work from violinist Michael White – one of a few that he cut for the Impulse label in the early 70s, all of which helped to completely redefine the use of his instrument in jazz!
