Patty Waters

College Tour

Label: Esp-Disk

Format: CD

Genre: Jazz

In stock


2013 reissue, originally released in 1966. Patty Waters is internationally recognized as one of the first major avant-garde vocalists, cited as an influence by Yoko Ono, Diamanda Galás, and Patti Smith. Waters's first two LPs, both on ESP-Disk', had the most impact. In 1966, the year after her groundbreaking debut, Sings, appeared, the New York State Council on the Arts gave ESP-Disk' a grant to tour the five state colleges with music departments. Artists on this tour included the Sun Ra Arkestra, Burton Greene, Patty Waters, Giuseppi Logan, and Ran Blake. Accompanied by all-star backup groups from among the participants, Patty's performances resulted in the present album, College Tour. The album, which won second place for Vocal Recording in Jazz and Pop Magazine, expands upon the vocal acrobatics that were heard on her debut. College Tour was reissued on vinyl by ESP-Disk' in 2009, and was part of the 2005 CD Complete ESP-Disk' Recordings (now out of print), but this is the first U.S. CD release of the original program by itself. Ran Blake, Burton Greene, Dave Burrell: piano; Giuseppi Logan: flute; Steve Tintweiss, Perry Lind: bass; Shelly Rusten, Scobe Stroman: drums. Recorded "live" by David B. Jones in April 1966. RIYL: Yoko Ono, Diamanda Galás, Jeanne Lee.
