Named among 100 Most Essential Jazz Recordings by The New York Times!
200-gram vinyl plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings
Considered by many as a true jazz classic, Julius Hemphill's Dogon A. D. is listed by the New York Times as one of the 100 Most Essential Jazz Recordings.
A fundamental statement of a new era in jazz music, Hemphill's performance here avoids the loud, instinctual blowing so many other jazz musicians defaulted to in the early 70s, and instead provides lean instrumentation, blues, funk, and avant-garde chamber jazz. Long out of print on vinyl, and never issued on CD, the 1972 performance is here reissued on a two-disc LP plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings! in a limited edition.
Remastered from original master tapes for vastly improved sound quality over all previous vinyl pressings, and including as a bonus the monumental twenty minute cut The Hard Blues, recorded at the same February 1972 sessions as the three other tracks on Dogon A. D. but not originally issued on that album (it appeared instead as side two of his other Arista/Freedom album, 'Coon Bid'ness).
