david murray solo saxophone VOL'S 1and2, FLAC AND LAME

Continuing on with the series of early david murray recordings.
Here is murrays biggest challenge up to that point, 2 lps of solo saxophone made for cecma(another great Italian label).
For me this is the crest of a peak which includes sweet and lovely and interboogieology, and culminates with the great early octet recordings ming and home.

These 2 solo lp’s have been out of circulation since being released together on a now out of print cd in 1990.

I had only ever heard(through a friend) vol -2 which includes a great version of body and soul.
Vol 1 features 2 of murrays best early compositions in intense and very vivid versions ‘sweet and lovely’ and ‘flowers for albert’.

This is sensational - thanks! A worthy companion to Braxton's solo outings.
