Pre-Order ALICE COLTRANE and LESLIE WINER February 18 2014
First-time vinyl reissue of one of the great debuts in jazz history, ALICE COLTRANE's A Monastic Trio was originally released on Impulse in 1968 and features Pharaoh Sanders, Jimmy Garrison, and Rashied Ali. As the late Amiri Baraka writes, "'I Want to See You' is a monastic piano concerto. With echoes of Europe ..., it has a solemnity and majesty to it.... Yes, monastic is the word. The piano broods in its earth imagination."
First-time domestic release of long out-of-print "hidden gem" (according to John Peel), LESLIE WINER's Witch features Jah Wobble (PUBLIC IMAGE LTD.) and is recommended for fans of PORTISHEAD, Vincent Gallo, and LIFETONES. Even though Witch predates Massive Attack and Tricky's breakthroughs by a year or more, WINER quickly rejected NME's christening her as the "grandmother of trip-hop."
