Rothenberg, Ned - The Lumina Recordings: Solo Works 1980-1985 - 2 x CDs

SKU TZ7615
Ned Rothenberg is a simply unbelievable reed player and speaking as someone who has seen him a few times, he has developed the sax/clarinet concert into a very impressive and high art form. "This special two-CD set collects all three of Ned Rothenberg's unique solo albums (Trespass, Portal and Trials of the Argo), recorded in New York from 1980 to 1985 and available previously only on his label Lumina in limited edition vinyl pressings. Unavailable for many years, the music has been remastered for this release and now sounds better than ever. These are the pieces that established Ned Rothenberg as one of the most technically proficient and imaginative reed players of his generation. Accompanied by a lavish thirty-six page booklet complete with copious notes, vintage photos, scores, posters and more, Solo Works is an essential document of modern reed music. Included as a bonus are twenty minutes of music for bass clarinet and electronics never issued before." Lots of solos, as well as duos with Gerry Hemmingway, David Weinstein and John Zorn.
