The first solo David Gates's album.
Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. George Adams and Don Pullen knock it out of the park on this one – finding great company in each other's presence, and really moving things forward in the process! The set begins with a long track titled "Mingus Metamorphosis", and that really sums up the spirit of the record – an 80s reworking of all the ideas that the players had learned from Mingus, but with an individual, personal sense that's all their own – and very different than some of the more standard modes of the Mingus Dynasty group that continued the legacy in a more direct manner. Adams is bold one minute, lyrical the next – and plays both tenor and flute – alongside Pullen on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums.
The health you enjoy today, and for the rest of your life, begins with your next breath. In fact, breathing is so crucial to your body's ability to heal and sustain itself that Dr. Andrew Weil says, "If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly."
According to the press release, the album is "deliberately shorter than previous albums, [as] the band sought to concentrate their trademark heaviness into shorter, punchier songs and fit the album onto a single vinyl LP." "Whilst this is definitely not a concept album, there is a loose lyrical theme relating to the pleasures and weaknesses of the flesh."Initially announced for release on May 27th, the CD release was delayed, as there was a problem with the booklets and they needed to be reprinted. A post on the Lord Vicar Facebook page confirmed the album was out on the 17th of June. The band also confirmed via Facebook that the CDs were made with all songs combined into one track by mistake.The cover artwork is a segment of the painting "Nymphs and Satyr" (1873) by French academic painter William Adolphe Bouguereau.
