Wildflowers 1 - The New York Loft Jazz Sessions (Douglas) VG++ / EX U.S.'1977 Sold

("the wildflower grows naturally, developing in its own time according to the laws of its own inner nature. Life outside the greenhouse can be harsh, but somehow it survives, bursting forth with ever renewed vitality and conviction. JAZZ is by its very nature a music of improvisation... therefore of invention... therefore of ongoing change! ...Many of the most important changes of the 1970s are now taking place in the Loft performing spaces that have emerged in New York as an alternative to the commercially oriented clubs and concert halls. Run cooperative by the musicians themselves, these lofts have become centers of creative activity by providing an environment outside the inhibiting pressures of the music business for the ongoing experimentation that is the life blood of the music. ...In the 10 years or so since the first lofts opened their doors, the players have used their independence to hone their musicianship, develop their individual voices and distill their music down to a readily communicable essence. In the process they have attracted a large audience of listeners responsive to the relaxed informality of the loft ambience and give & take between performer and listener, a shared enthusiasm that contributes to the music's characteristic high energy good feeling and lyricism.
