The complete remastered recordings on Black Saint & Soul Note is a monographic box-set collection aimed at recounting the most beautiful chapters that revolutionised the history of jazz. This new series was launched in March 2010 with the simultaneous release of four box-sets, including albums by some of the artists who participated in the success of the outstanding labels. A philological work, beginning with the original recordings on multi-track master tapes, patiently integrally remastered paying strict attention to the sound quality.
"Some of our favorite albums ever from pianist Muhal Richard Abrams an amazing run of eight records for the Black Saint/Soul Note label rich in fresh colors, tones, and new musical ideas! There's a sensitivity to some of these records that you don't always get with Abrams a personal feeling that brings in a much-needed warmth to his complex compositional forms often in collaboration with other players on the Chicago scene, but also with a wider range of avant players, especially from New York where Abrams would have a great influence in the 80s. The lineup of musicians here is wonderful a virtual who's-who of the jazz left at the time, at least from an American perspective with performances from George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell, Amina Myers, Thurman Barker, Baikida Carroll, Andrew Cyrille, Craig Harris, Stanton Davis, Marty Erlich, Dick Griffin, Cecil Bridgewater, Fred Hopkins, Dierdre Murray, and so many others. The set features 8 full albums, each in a tiny LP-styled sleeve" Dustygroove
