The Stratus Seekers (Lp)
Out of stock
Doxy presents a reissue of the George Russell Septet's The Stratus Seekers, originally issued in 1962. Joe Goldberg, from the original liner notes: "'Color'
is a word that crops up with great frequency whenever George Russell
discusses music. 'Dixieland has a color,' he has said; 'bop is a
definite color, and so is atonality.' Following that train of thought,
one might extend Russell's thesis and refer to him as a kaleidoscopic
musical figure: so many different 'colors,' to use his phrase, appear on
this album in so many shifting patterns that such a designation becomes
almost inevitable. Colors, kaleidoscopes, and a music that insists on
pushing its way out of arbitrary bags and containers. And although
Russell's music is experimental, often difficult, and based on
considerable technical theory, it is definitely full of just such vivid,
electric and appealing qualities." Numbered edition of 500.
