Philip GlassDance Nos 1 to 5 (3LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 3LP ... $42.99 49.99
Seminal work from minimalist genius Philip Glass – a set that was issued during the same decade that saw his important opera box sets define his career – but one that also hearkens back to some of the leaner experimental modes of his early days! Part of the set was recorded in 1979, the rest closer to the mid 80s release of the record – and the music was originally conceived as a project with artist Sol LeWitt and choreographer Lucinda Childs – but stands very strongly on its own as a way of exploring the leaner modes of expression from Glass. At times, the approach is very similar to the Steve Reich sound of the early 70s – especially on "Dance No 2" and "Dance No 4" – both of which are solo organ pieces. The other three dance pieces have a fuller feel – still lots of organ (and we love Glass' preference for a Farfisa!) – mixed with sax and flute lines, and a bit of voice. Beautiful all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

Philip GlassDance Pieces (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Don't let the 80s-styled cover, and the word "dance" put you off – as the set's filled with beautiful music from Philip Glass – two works done at a time when the composer was maybe at his greatest power, each for two difference dance-related projects! Side one features "In The Upper Room" – done for choreographer Twyla Tharp, and with full orchestrations that are wonderful – very much in the spirit of some of his soundtrack material for Koyaanisqatsi – but without some of the deeper tones and vocal chorus parts. At times, the piano is at the forefront – played by Michael Riesman – but strings and woodwinds are key, too, as the piece shifts through five different dances. "Glasspiece" was done for Jerome Robbins, and has a bit more keyboards at the start, like some of Glass' smaller group 70s work – but then brings in woodwinds and strings in a nice way, before moving back to more keyboards in the final third, which is a reworking of a passage from the opera Akhnaten.

✨✧ Philip GlassKoyaanisqatsi ... LP
Antilles, 1983. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of the first film scores ever done by Philip Glass – and a sublime batch of music that exposed his genius to a whole world who'd never heard him before! The music builds in a beautifully minimal way – with rumbling organ and orchestral themes at the beginning, which slowly evolve into brilliantly streaming lines of repeating notes played on keyboards, reeds, and strings – building in a gradual way, but with really subtle power – and occasional voices that come into the blend to push the whole thing even further. Completely amazing – and still one of our favorite records by the legendary composer! LP, Vinyl record album

Philip GlassSatyagraha (3LP Box Set) ... LP
Columbia, 1985. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set ... $49.99
Amazing work from Philip Glass – his second great opera, and a long-overdue follow-up to Einstein On The Beach – a set of music that's every bit as great as that groundbreaking work, but maybe even with stronger, fuller execution overall! The piece looks at the early political years of Gandhi – the title is a term coined by him, as a reference to his philosophy of truth and love – with words by Constance DeJohng, and these amazing minimalist orchestrations by Glass – filled with the kind of long-spun lines you'd find in his instrumental work, but somehow made even more amazing with the presence of lyrics! Douglas Perry handles the role of Gandhi – and the performance is by the New York City Opera Orchestra and Chorus, directed by Christopher Keene. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philip GlassItaipu/The Canyon – Robert Shaw/Atlanta Symphony Orchestra & Chorus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sony/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1993. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful orchestral work from Philip Glass – a set that features the long piece "Itaipu", and the shorter "The Canyon" – both handled with a mix of instrumentation and voices that really gives the music a sense of majesty! Although Robert Shaw recorded some relatively mundane vocal records for RCA back in the postwar years, he's really at his best here – using the voices next to the bold brass, strings, and woodwinds with a sense of formation that often uses the lower end of the sonic spectrum in a great way – maybe a bit reminiscent of Glass' soundtrack recordings for Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi, with some obvious ties to his 80s opera work too.

Bing & RuthSpecies ... LP
4AD, 2020. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 27.99
There's no Bing, there's no Ruth – just a trio headed by composer David Moore, who plays these fantastic lines on Farfisa organ alongside the clarinet of Jeremy Viner and bass of Jeff Ratner! The instrument was maybe used most famously in a setting like this by Philip Glass in the 70s – but Moore's minimalism is quite different – very spacious, and almost subtle – unfolding like the petals of a flower over time, often with lower tones from the instrument mixed in alongside subtle bits of clarinet and bass – so that the whole thing has this warm swell up from the bottom, with a quality that puts it very strongly in the best legacy of 4AD – maybe even with a sound that takes that legendary imprint back to its roots. Beautiful stuff throughout – with titles that include "Badwater Psalm", "I Had No Dream", "Live Forever", "The Pressure Of This Water", "Body In A Room", and "Blood Harmony". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve ReichFour Organs/Phase Patterns ... CD
Superior Viaduct, 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
Brilliant minimal work from Steve Reich – pre-fame performances that really get to the core of minimalist composition from the start of the movement – played by a hip small group of musicians that includes Reich, Steve Chambers, Art Murphy, and Philip Glass! "Four Organs" is a wonderful combination of the instruments mentioned in the title – coming together with a cool drone-building quality, and driven by some very slight, soft rhythms on maracas – very cool, and relatively spare – but with a compelling sound that definitely shows that Reich and his contemporaries were onto a whole new groove. "Phase Patterns" has organs again - and is a slow, subtle exploration of Reich's early ideas on patterns of phase shifting – delivered here in a spare, stark, simple way that really hooks you into his musical ideas, in ways that some of the larger concept records sometimes fail to do.

✨✧ Max RichterHenry May Long ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime soundtrack material from Max Richter – but work that dovetails perfectly with some of his more "serious" albums on Deutsche Grammophon! The music features Richter on piano, alongside two cellos, a violin, and viola – but sounding completely unlike piano and strings – as the instruments are all used in that flowing, open, spacious style that Max his brought to other compositions – melodic and atmospheric at the same time, yet rich in feeling and tone, and never sleepy at all! Richter's a fantastic minimalist – but one who's completely different than the generation of Steve Reich and Philip Glass – although, like Glass, his compositional techniques are turning out to be a perfect accompaniment to images on a screen. Titles include "Stairs Abyss Starlight", "Ocean House Mirror", "Interior Horses", "The Young Mariner", "Powder Pills Truth", "Whale Window Hotel 1", and "Dinner & The Ship Of Dreams". CD

✨✧ Arthur RussellInstrumentals ... LP
Audika, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible chapter in the Arthur Russell story – and one that's not nearly as well-known as his club singles and art rock work of the 80s! The 2LP package presents some long-lost longer form work by Russell – instrumental pieces composed and recorded in the 70s and early 80s, most of which have a decidedly minimalist feel! In addition to being a dancefloor artist in the post-disco years, Russell was also music director of The Kitchen, and had ties to the more experimental side of the New York scene – and worked in a world that included Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Rhys Chatham, and many others from time. There's echoes of all 3 in this wonderful instrumental material, recalling the brighter, more optimistic years of modern music – the almost DIY style that hit composition and performance in the stretch after early minimalism, conveyed beautifully on these recordings done for smaller ensembles, often in a mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation. The package features full notes on the music, and titles that include "Instrumentals Vol 1", "Instrumentals Vol 2", "Reach One – With Two Fender Rhodes (1973)" and "Sketch For The Face Of Helen". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a nice insert booklet notes and photos.)
