Label: Unseen Worlds
フィリップ・グラス・アンサンブルのメンバーとしても活動したDickie Landryによる、1977年Northern Light Records／WERGOより発表したソロLP [Fifteen Saxophones] がUnseen WorldsよりCD & LPで正規リイシュー。テープディレイを多用した極上の催眠ミニマル[15 Saxophones]、[Alto Flute Quad Delay]、そしてニューヨークkitchenでの22分のパフォーマンス録音[Kitchen Solos]、長尺の3編を纏めた内容。
"First ever CD reissue of this little known classic from founding Philip Glass Ensemble member Richard 'Dickie' Landry. Following two jazz LPs issued on the Chatham Square label (which he co-ran), Dickie Landry released Fifteen Saxophones, a set of 1974 recordings done with engineer Kurt Munkacsi, on the Northern Lights and Wergo labels in 1978. Fifteen Saxophones simultaneously demonstrates Landry's boundary-pushing saxophone and his understanding of the minimalists' long-form treatises on sound. Using intricate Revox tape delays on 'Fifteen Saxophones', 'Alto Flute Quad Delay,' and the side-long live document 'Kitchen Solos', Landry's strong personality as a player shines through a brilliant wall of sound. It is unsurprising Landry was a fixture in the same New York scene that spawned artists like Richard Serra - something equally monumental exists in the pieces found on this album. This reissue includes new liner notes by Clifford Allen and period photos by Gianfranco Gorgoni."
