Our friend Tom Schnabel, fan and scholar of great music from all over the globe, has posted a fan-tastically informative article about our new Legrand Jazz 180-gram LP on KCRW’s blog (read below). His anecdotes really put into context the importance of these recording dates, the happenstance, and grit that made them happen, and the influence American’s major art form (and some of it’s greatest musicians) had on the legendary Parisian composer. Check it out (along with all of Tom’s thoughtful elucidations) on the blog, then check out the LP at Elusive Disc or your local audiophile dealer.
COMING SOON: We are excited to announce the December 2017 release of our all-new, all-analog, 33-rpm pressing of the classic “nuevo flamenco” record Friday Night in San Francisco! Fusion greats Al Dimeola (Return To Forever) and John McLaughlin (Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra), along with flamenco master Paco DeLucia, are captured in incredibly life-like recordings that recreate a moment where three giant talents came together in perfect musical synchronicity. Mastered from the original master tapes by Bernie Grundman and our own Bob Donnelly, this is a rare 33.3 rpm reissue of a seminal audiophile title. Limited to 3,000 individually numbered copies, so you’ll want to preorder yours here as fast as DiMeola, Laughlin, and DeLucia play.
