In Steve Kuhn's 70th birthday year (2008) three historic recordings by the great American pianist are issued for the first time on CD in a specially-priced, digitally re-mastered 3-CD box set under the title 'Life's Backward Glances.' Contains the much sought-after albums 'Ecstasy', 'Motility' and 'Playground', recorded in 1974, 1977 and 1979. All are new to CD except 'Ecstasy' which was previously available only in Japan. LPs of all three albums are long out of print and highly collectable. 'Ecstasy' belongs in the line of great solo piano discs on ECM including Chick Corea, Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett - Kuhn's album is a major statement on this level. 'Motility' featured Kuhn's working quartet of the mid-70s, with dynamic saxophonist Steve Slagle, and 'Playground' introduced the very popular quartet with singer Sheila Jordan. Personnel: Steve Kuhn (piano) with: Sheila Jordan (vocals), Steve Slagle (saxophones, flute), Harvie Swartz (double-bass), Bob Moses, Michael Smith (drums).

This 5- disc set came about as a result of the band's entire 90's studio back catalog going out of print. Bandleader and keyboardist Erik Norlander decided the best way to reissue those albums would be to remaster all 3 of the albums (their 1993 debut, EARTHBOUND; their 1995 sophomore effort, BRUTAL ARCHITECTURE; and their third album, 1999's OBLIVION DAYS), add on a disc of rerecordings from 2007, AND a DVD of candid studio footage dating from 1993-2007, an interview with Stick genius Emmett Chapman, and the 2007 Sessions plus interview segments all shot by HD film crews…
