Odyssey Black 2XLP (45RPM)

James Blood Ulmer      

Odyssey Black 2XLP (45RPM)


Odyssey stands as James Blood Ulmer’s signature masterpiece, the purest and most accessible showcase for his bold, genre-clashing guitar vision. With minimal trio accompaniment - only drummer Warren Benbow and violinist Charles Burnham - Ulmer’s guitar is always the meat of the ensemble, especially since his unique tuning (developed for this album) allows him to cover bass parts as well as guitar leads. AllMusic’s Steve Huey calls it “not only Ulmer’s finest album, but a certified classic of the modern jazz avant-garde.” Now Odyssey finally gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, in the form of a double LP, mastered at 45RPM from original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman, pressed on 180gram vinyl at Pallas in Germany, and housed in Stoughton case-wrapped jacket. Numbered, Limited Edition of 2000 Copies.
