Legendary American musician and composer Laraaji (Edward Larry Gordon) announced the release of a new album. Sun Piano is out on July 17th via Al Saints Records. It finds Afro-Transcendentalist, Laraaji, fulfilling a lifelong ambition to return to his first instrument, learnt whilst growing up in 1950s New Jersey.
A departure from his FX-soaked cosmic zither jams, these elegant miniatures nevertheless reveal enough personality and inner light to be clearly identifiable as ‘Laraaji Music’. It was recorded in a Brooklyn Church by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs, Mary Lattimore).
“Temple of the New Light” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
