Look at that artwork, you know what jazz record you're getting when Big Mati Klarwein is providing the record buyer's first experience of the album. Saxophonist Jackie McLean is on another planet on this, the band are playing the most free modal post bop jazz, just swinging into another cosmos. BANGING!
Jackie McLean’s music weaved in and out of the avant-garde throughout the late-60s but the saxophonist maintained a decidedly post-bop edge on Demon’s Dance featuring trumpeter Woody Shaw, pianist LaMont Johnson, bassist Scott Holt, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and striking cover art by Mati Klarwein.This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.
