Attila Zoller-Masahiko Satoh, A Path through Haze 1971-MPS


In a completely different vein , heres a beautiful MPS session from 1971, featuring legendary post bop guitarist Atilla Zoller, Harmonically Challenging and at times tonally ambiguous ,though relatively straight ahead with lots of delightful free wheeling interplay,by Satoh and Zoller.

All in all rather reminiscent of  the material performed by a sensational mid sixties band led by pianist Don Friedman, that recorded a couple of albums for Prestige
the best of which ,"Metamorphoses" happens to be among my favorite records...(available on CD and well worth checking out)

To my knowledge this hasn't been issued on CD outside of Japan , unaccountably given its superb quality!... it has been around in mp3's which perhaps can still be found around the blogosphere.

this is ripped from a very clean copy , made by Teichiku in the early 70's

A Path Through Haze Mps (UL-X-38-P)1971
Attila Zoller-G
Masahiko Satoh-pno
Yasuo Arakawa-DB
Masahiko Ozu-dr
recorded at Teldec Studio Berlin, 7th Nov 1971

enjoy!! , and Explore Zoller's (and Satohs)available discography scant as it is, you wont be disappointed ... a great one of Zoller's on MPS that is available , is Zo Ko So,1965, with Martial Solal, and Hans Koller
Best S

PS, does anyone have the rarer MPS Zoller Satoh Duo... ???

ah, an old friend come back to me in digital form! Thanks so much for posting what is by far a better rip than I'd ever be able to get out of my 40 year old vinyl.

Mr Mg and anyone else ... A Good turntable goes a long way ,and,a few weeks ago i bought New Old stock of Audio Technica Styli , previously i'd been using contemporary copies which are trash
suddenly my vinyl has come alive!!joy of joys....
the rips are straight no processing after the initial conversion of the signal , and only light declick almost none on this one!!
