Eden Ahbez

Eden's Island (LP)

Label: Black Sweat Records

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

Ahbez, was a 20th century maverick, possibly comparable to Moondog and Harry Partch. A bearded, vegetarian, sandal wearing traveller, known for sleeping in caves and even under the Hollywood sign - in the 1940s. This record, his only album, recorded in 1960, sits quite comfortably alongside exotica proponents Arthur Lyman and Martin Denny: vibraphones, heavenly choruses and bamboo sticks abound, with poetic meandering and a sprinkle of jazz. A major commercial failure, often accused of kitsch, it is actually one of the great iconoclastic masterpieces of Exotica encountering spiritual jazz! LP comes housed in silk screened sleeve, with liner notes insert.
