Deeply transportive, multi-instrumental contemporary Jazz suite from Utah label FOUNTAINavm who draft in the endless talents and wealth of experience from Doc Lloyd Miller - a leading authority within the worlds of Persian, Middle-Eastern and Far-Eastern musics both academic and experiential. Highly recommended for fans of Horace Tapscott, Alice Coltrane, Futuro Antico and Pharoah Sanders alike !
Anyone who’s done a little digging might recognise Miller’s name from a batch of mind-blowing self-released Oriental Jazz LPs offered via his own East-West label in the 60’s, which sought to authentically bridge the gap between Eastern and Western musical nodes by drawing on his experiences of researching Persian and Afghan music during a stint living in Tehran. Now right up to date, ‘At The Ends Of The World’ enlists the support of local musicians Ian Camp and Adam Michael Terry, laying out an expansive and all-engulfing terrain that twists between heady psychedelic folk, contemplative new-age minimalism and more brooding spiritual jazz moments, all heavily imbrued with the aura of ‘The East’. A truly timeless, immersive and much-needed mind-trip at the hands of a master at work who’s only getting better with age.
