Jazz Orient
Jazz Orient's first recording - remastered on CD for the first time.
This Indo-jazz fusion band's first album set their stall out. 4 pieces went on to be recorded again with different arrangements and line-up on later albums but here is where it all started.

background
Jazz Orient's first recording from 1991 remastered here on CD for the first time. It had been thought that the master to this album had been lost but has just recently been found.

Recorded at Linda & Baluji's house on borrowed multitrack recording equipment, the album finds them in very creative form laying down the first recordings to 4 pieces that would become cornerstones of their set for many years. Inbetween these pieces are improvisations.

Gerald Wells - guest tabla player and regular guest with Jazz Orient passed away several years ago - this re-release is dedicated to his memory.


influences
Flora Purim, Piirpauke, Oregon, Kolinda, Paul Winter, Trilok Gurtu
