Roos, Randy - Mistral (limited edition/mini-lp sleeve)

SKU 19-Modulus 5002
A very little known, but very high quality fusion album from 1978 from the one-time guitarist of Boston's 'beloved-but-never-quite-famous ' artsy rock outfit Orchestra Luna. This is totally different and will especially appeal to guitar head fusion fans, as it features not only Roos, but lots of work from second guitarist Mike Stern in one of his earliest featured sidemen roles! This has never appeared on CD before and gets a 'deluxe and delightful', tip-on mini-lp sleeve, carefully remastered from the master tapes, treatment! Only 500 will be made of this! Pricey, yes, but extremely high quality and recommended.

"After the break up of art rock pioneers Orchestra Luna, guitarist Randy Roos changed gears and assembled the Mistral band. The resulting album, from 1978, features fusion stars Mike Stern, Neil Stubenhaus, Louis DeAndrade, and Alyrio Lima (Weather Report). Masterfully playing a variety of fretted and fretless guitars, Roos demonstrates why its time for this overlooked gem to be revisited. Mistral is pure high energy fusion that will appeal to fans of Jeff Beck and Return To Forever. It comes with liner notes from noted jazz journalist Bill Milkowski. Mistral has been remastered from the original analogue master tapes by audiophile engineer Bob Katz. It arrives in an old style mini-LP tip-on sleeve. Strictly limited to 500 copies!"
