REMASTERED REISSUE OF 1980'S IVORY FOREST

During a rich musical period in the late '70s with many performances around New York City and two European tours together, pianist Hal Galper and guitarist John Scofield recorded a pair of legendary albums that demonstrated the well grounded paths they were on, their concepts coalescing in a hub of scorched earth intensity. Scofield's Rough House was followed by Galper's Ivory Forest recorded in October 1979, both originally on the German Enja label and with Adam Nussbaum on drums. Now 40+ years later, and the legacy set with countless thousands of musicians inspired to follow in their steps, the sounds remain modern and vital.

Reviews of Ivory Forest Redux

Jazz Weekly (George W Harris)
Someone has been holding out on us… This album with leader Hal Galper on piano includes guitarist John Scofield, bassist Wayne Dockery and drummer Adam Nussbaum, and has finally been reissued after being out of circulation not long after its original 1979 release. It's an impressive yet understated affair, combining quartet efforts with duets ...
