At Now-Again, we avoid hyperbole, yet we believe that this album is one of record collecting’s ultimate finds: the missing entry in jazz pianist/composer/psychiatrist Denny Zeitlin’s discography, a wonderful and weird fusion of avant-classical, jazz, funk, rock and electronic music.
A 2nd bonus LP with additional songs was available to Now-Again Reserve subscribers. Single LP versions are available at key retailers. This album was the last entry in Now-Again Reserve as a subscription series – and it is now being offered at our Rappcats webstore. Future Reserve releases will see wide release, with pre-sales and discounted prices available via our Rappcats webstore.
