Thanks. The best Geodesic was the reissue of the long out-of-print Transdimensional Space Window.

haven't heard jenkins' "through the ages, jehovah" since andrew cyrille's FANTASTIC album "The Navigator." Look forward to hearing the man himself revisiting it here, and all the rest... Thank you!

wow - I was still pretty actively reviewing at that time, and nothing on this label crossed my radar (surprisingly). They must've been very word-of-mouth. Can't wait to hear this.
