Awesome spiritual, modal & ethnic jazz from the pioneer of the genre, Lloyd Miller!
This is the definitive anthology of pioneering ethno-musicologist, mystical adventurer and real life jazz guru Dr Lloyd Miller on Jazzman! This album tells the fascinating life story of one man and his journey through Europe and the Middle East, living off nothing but his wits, talent and an open-minded attitude towards music and jazz. Master of dozens of languages and hundreds of instruments, Miller has spent fifty years immersed in the music of Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Featuring recordings taken from incredibly rare privately pressed albums, live sessions in Europe, and previously unreleased material, A Lifetime in Oriental Jazz tells the story of his extraordinary personal journey from the West Coast to the Far East. Played on a plethora of exotic instruments from around the world, Miller's music is a unique blend of jazz with the modal and spiritual sounds of traditional Asian and Middle Eastern music. Spiritual jazz, Eastern jazz - direct from the source!
Available on deluxe heavyweight limited vinyl and compact disc with digitally remastered sound, previously unreleased material, 16 page colour CD booklet with in-depth liner notes from Jazzman's original interviews, photographs and scans of Miller’s private press LPs liner notes and unseen archive photos.
