First ever CD and limited edition LP* reissue of this little known classic from founding Philip Glass Ensemble member Richard "Dickie" Landry. Following two jazz LPs issued on the Chatham Square label (which he co-ran), Dickie Landry released Fifteen Saxophones, a set of 1974 recordings done with engineer Kurt Munkacsi, on the Northern Lights and Wergo labels in 1977. Fifteen Saxophones simultaneously demonstrates Landry’s boundary-pushing saxophone and his understanding of the minimalists’ long-form treatises on sound. Using intricate Revox tape delays on "Fifteen Saxophones", "Alto Flute Quad Delay" and the side-long live document "Kitchen Solos", Landry’s strong personality as a player shines through a brilliant wall of sound. It is unsurprising Landry was a fixture in the same New York scene that spawned artists like Richard Serra – something equally monumental exists in the pieces found on this album.

 

"…stunningly psychedelic, recalling Terry Riley’s All-Night Flights … it’s the perfect combination of hazy, fluttering psychedelia and tough, tactile reed work." – Volcanic Tongue

CD TRACK LIST

  1. Fifteen Saxophones (10:30)
  2. Alto Flute Quad Delay (9:40)
  3. Kitchen Solos (21:46)

Catalog No: UW006CD
