Featuring a star-studded cast of supporting musicians like Ray Brown on bass, Shelley Mann on drums, Bud Shank on flutes and alto sax plus more.
"Each track on Shades of Dring is aptly named for a color that English composer Madeleine Dring associated with a specific pitch - a quality she possessed perfectly (pitch that is). The album is full of intricate counterpoint and rhythm, and wonderfully lyrical interpretations of the suites - try 'Saxy Blue' and you'll see why I dig this album so much. The recording is direct to two-track, 30 ips, with mixed-on-the-spot immediacy." Shannon Dickson, Stereophile, Records To Die For, February 1996.
A rare find, this sealed LP from 1981 is a certified audiophile classic.
