James, Bob - Explosions

SKU 05-ESP 1009
Classic ESP release, recorded May 10, 1965. Yes, this is the same Bob James who practically invented 'smooth and happy jazz', but this is a completely different animal and features the great Barre Phillips.

"Probably the first recording of improvised jazz combined with electronic music (by Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma), as well as playing inside the piano and other new music techniques. Contains lively and often humorous compositions by Bob James and Gordon Mumma ("Peasant Boy"), Bob Ashley and Bob James ("Untitled Mixes"), Bob James ("Explosions"), Barre Phillips ("An On"), and a version (not the full one for voice and electronics found in Source magazine) of "Wolfman" by Bob Ashley and Bob James. With Bob James (piano), Barre Phillips (bass), and Robert Pozar (percussion)."-"Blue" Gene Tyranny.
