Beaver & Krause / Gerry Mulligan / Bud Shank - Gandharva Gandharva
Psych New - LP WS 1909 Warner
Sealed 1971 Blue Cover Art 2nd Edition (Original Pressing, First Edition Feature The Same Cover Art In Red). “In Electronic Music Circles -- And Among "Heads" In General -- The Names Of Beaver & Krause Have Attained An Almost Mystical Status That Their Small Back Catalog Frankly Struggles To Live Up To. Sure, They Were Matchmakers When Commercial Rock And Electronic Music Were Circling Each Other Warily -- It Was Bernie Krause, In Particular, Who Introduced The Moog Synthesizer To The Likes Of George Harrison And Micky Dolenz (Though He Neglected To Show Them How To Put It To Good Use). Yet Much Of Their Recorded Work Sounds Remarkably Timid When Compared To That Of Other Electronic Pioneers Of The Period. Ironically, The Most Powerful Music They Committed To Record Involved Hardly Any Electronic Input Whatsoever. The Suite That Filled The Second Side Of Gandharva Was Recorded In San Francisco's Grace Cathedral -- Chosen For Its Extended Decay Time And As A Space That Would Make The Most Of New Quadrophonic Recording Techniques -- And Involved Jazz Legend Gerry Mulligan On Baritone Sax And Bud Shank On Alto Sax And Flute. Also Present Were Gail Laughton, Playing Two Harps Simultaneously, Howard Roberts On Guitar, And Krause On Moog -- Though He Can Only Be Heard Adding The Very Occasional Rumble. But What Made The Music Unlike Any Previously Recorded Was Paul Beaver's Serene Performance On The Cathedral's Pipe Organ. The Combination Of Sax And Church Organ Has Been Attempted Many Times Since (By Keith Jarrett And Jan Garbarek To Name But Two), But Never Have The Results Come Close To Matching These. "Short Film For David," "Good Places," And Mulligan's Own "By Your Grace" Are Works Of Extraordinary Stillness And Beauty, With Both Shank And Mulligan Soaring Effortlessly.” Christopher Evans, AMG.... more details
