    **Double LP Coloured Vinyl + Bonus 45 Collectors edition limited to 300 only & Double LP black vinyl limited editions available - ONE PER CUSTOMER** 

    Virtually unknown and previously unreleased album from the Strata catalogue by virtouso jazz musician Maulawi on 180 Proof! 

    Although there is an element of mystery to almost all jazz musicians, few are ever quite as enigmatic as Maulawi Nururdin. A legendary band leader and reedist to his disciples, information about Maulawi’s personal life and early years is so scarce that even his birth name remains unknown. What is known is that Maulawi was a tougher-than-nails Chicagoan by birth, inescapable mentor to others, and a virtuoso jazz musician unlike any other.

    NB: 2xLP (180 gram) pressed on black vinyl £28.99 & 2xLP (180 gram) + Bonus 45 on coloured vinyl £39.99
