    This album is definitely a one-of a kind unique release on Strata East - out of print for nearly 50 years and unbelievably hard to find. Do not miss out if you want one as Strata East always sell out! Big DOUBLE 180gm vinyl plus gatefold sleeve - quality package!

    SEMINAL & SUPER-RARE STRATA-EAST double album - six pianos! This album is a genre defying mix of deep, deep spiritual jazz with the addition of Steve Reich/Phillip Glass modernism! Heavy tracks like 'Nation Time' and more.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    'Handscapes' is a double live album by The Piano Choir featuring an absolutely HEAVYWEIGHT set of pianists together - Strata-East co-founder Stanley Cowell alongside Nat Jones, Hugh Lawson, Webster Lewis, Harold Mabern, Danny Mixon, and Sonelius Smith recorded and originally released in 1972.

    At the time of release Ebony reviewer Phyl Garland said "One needn't be a "piano freak" to appreciate a truly new recording. First of all imagine seven gifted and talented pianists sitting down to seven grand pianos (with electric piano, organ, harpsichord, a few tambourines for spice) and proceeding to tear up these instruments - musically, that is. ...the torrrent of sound springing from their 70 fingers is so powerful and majestic as to be unlike anything one has ever heard."
