D1CKIE L4NDRY - FIFTEEN SAX0PHONES (1977)
This long-time member of the Philip Glass Ensemble cut a few records of his own in the 1970s--including this pulsing gem of ethereality. The album is comprised of three works that would likely be called minimalist, despite their sweeping monumentality. All parts, sax and flute, are played by Landry with the assistance of an intricate series of Revox tape delays. The last track--my favorite--is a more jazz-inflected live recording from The Kitchen in 1974. A fantastic, delta-wave-inducing, lesser-known masterpiece.
