Editorial Reviews

George Allen Russell was an American jazz pianist, composer and theorist. He is considered one of the first jazz musicians to contribute to general music theory with a theory of harmony based on Jazz rather than European music that was outlined in his textbook 'The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization.' This specially-priced set includes nine classic albums from Black Saint/Soul Note. Included are Electronic Sonata for Those Loved by Nature (I and II), Othello Ballet Suite, Vertical Form VI, Listen to the Silence, Trip to Prillarguri, New York Big Band, The Essence of George Russell and Live in an American Time Spiral.

Verified Purchase
Nine albums from the late 60's through the early 80's. The albums have been remastered and are fairly spacious and clean sounding. Each album is housed in a cardboard replica of the original release, and everything fits inside a substantial lidded box. There's no booklet. The only information is on the backs of each album (in small font) or on the back of the outer box. There's no additional tracks-these are the original albums. This is yet another in the great series that's been released by the Black Saint/Soul Note label.

George Russell is hard to categorize in jazz. He's mostly known for his musical theory The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization-which is a fancy title for his work on the modal direction in music that Miles Davis and John Coltrane incorporated into their own respective music. Today Russell isn't all that well known, but several of his albums (included here) are well worth hearing. So don't think I'm not rooting for Russell-I've been listening to his early stuff on the Original Jazz Classics label since the late 60's. You may disagree with me and that's fine. The box set lists the albums out of chronological order, so I'm following the labels order.

"Electronic Sonata For Souls Loved By Nature-1980, is a reworking of the original music recorded in 1969. This is a sextet reading of the '69 set (also a sextet), but it doesn't seem to add much to the original. This recording sounds very loose (almost under rehearsed) in spots. The music sounds fairly superficial-unlike the original. But it's still worth hearing in context with both the original and a live version on "The Essence of George Russell" album-both included here. Lew Soloff, on trumpet, gets in some nice stabs throughout this set.
