Arthur Russell - World Of Echo
|Released||Late June 2019|
This is meditative pop music that straddles Alice Coltrane's Journey or Don Cherry's Organic Music Society and the downtown New York-disco-post-punk scene he came up in. I marvel at this this every time I hear it.
Originally released on LP in 1986, “World Of Echo” is a deeply intimate and meditative work of awe-inspiring grace and remains a timeless work of sublime beauty. Arthur’s aim was to achieve what he calls “the most vivid rhythmic reality”, with just cello, voice, and echoes. Arthur achieved all of this and more on one of the most amazing albums you will ever hear.
