The Nostalgia 77 Octet - The Impossible EquationTru Thoughts Recordings
Ben Lamdin's latest Nostalgia 77 project has got to be his finest to date. Available on limited edition vinyl only it includes 3 outstanding ethereal jazz works. The title track, a 22 minute epic is a disjointed yet essential listening experience. 'Well Being 1' features some serious drum work reminiscent of Art Blakey but the standout has got to be their rendition of Adele Sebastian's 'Desert Fairy Princess', a beautiful example of modality.
