Blue Moses
Sealed 2016 Gatefold Original. CC. One Of The Greatest Of The CTI Recordings. After Seven Years Without Making Any Recordings, "Blue Moses" Was Recorded In 1972 In Rudy Van Gelder's Studio. Lengthy Trips Through North Africa And As Far As The Niger, Plus The Ignorance Of American Record Companies, Were The Reasons For The Long Pause. Finally The CTI Producer Creed Taylor Took An Interest In Randy Weston And Financed A Large Ensemble With Don Sebesky As Arranger. The Four Themes Provide A Great Basis For Improvisations By The Soloists, Whereby Randy Weston's Piano Takes The Lion's Share. The Flute Is Also Very Prominent — And No Wonder: It Is Played By Hubert Laws. It Is Quite Possible That Many Jazz Fans Will Have Missed The Name Randy Weston When Flipping Through The Letter 'W' In Record Shops In The 70s. Now They Have The Opportunity To Correct This Mistake With This Reissue. Recording: March & April 1972 At Rudy Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA. Production: Creed Taylor.
