Unreal bass player..'Mountains in the Clouds' from this period remains a high point for him..I'm hoping for more of the same here..The whole U.S period (roughly '66-'70) is, for me, his most interesting work..By the by I love the cover art here..A cigarette between Miroslav's fingers!!! Love it....

I really like this set -- it allowed me to give "fusion" a chance, and that has been really productive for me. Wonderfully weird stuff.

serviceton said...

Steve Marcus's afro on the cover has me in awe - he later went on to play for a long time with Buddy Rich's band, both before *and after* Rich's death. I think he had to give up the afro (and the Coltrane-ims) for that particular gig though.
Is the noise reduction quite heavily applied here? Some places I don't really notice it, but others (say the beginning of the 2nd track ) the sound swirls around in a way that sounds odd and disconcerting - tough on the ears.
Don't want to be churlish - and I thank you both for the chance to hear this record.

Nick said...

Hi Serviceton. It will be because I forgot to lift the ground on the ADC. I will re-do.

many thanks

onxidlib said...

I thought this special sound phenomenon which Serviceton describes was intentional...somehow...er }:-|

serviceton said...

Nick - didn't mean to sound ungrateful - certainly don't sweat a re-rip merely on my account.
I am interested though - what is the 'ground on the ADC' thing you mentioned? I guess that ADC is Analog Digital Converter? But beyond that?..

Nick said...

Hi Serviceton, I didn't take it that way at all. If I can work out how to fix the recording on this, I'll know what to do better in future.

I don't want to start some kind of technical thread, because I think IS is about the music and musicians. Plus I'm not very technical. But feel free to email.

Thanks mightily for posting this.

Any chance for a reload?

Multiupload seems down, indefinitely now, and possibly for good.

Is there any way to download this without having to go through LNX.lu? It's impossible to get to the download link.

Thanks
