A true jazz classic, Julius Hemphill’s Dogon A.D is listed by the New York Times as one of The 100 Most Essential Jazz Recordings. A fundamental statement of a new era in jazz music, Hemphill’s performance here avoids the loud, instinctual blowing so many other jazz musicians defaulted to in the early '70s, and instead provides lean instrumentation, blues, funk, and avant-garde chamber jazz.

 

 

  • Limited Edition (1000 units)
  • 200 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
  • Pressed at Quality Record Pressings QRP USA
  • Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes
  • Mastered by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab

Considered by many as a true jazz classic, Julius Hemphill's Dogon A. D. is listed by the New York Times as one of the 100 Most Essential Jazz Recordings.

 

A fundamental statement of a new era in jazz music, Hemphill's performance here avoids the loud, instinctual blowing so many other jazz musicians defaulted to in the early 70s, and instead provides lean instrumentation, blues, funk, and avant-garde chamber jazz. Long out of print on vinyl, and never issued on CD, the 1972 performance is here reissued on a two-disc LP plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings! in a limited edition.

 

Remastered from original master tapes for vastly improved sound quality over all previous vinyl pressings, and including as a bonus the monumental twenty minute cut The Hard Blues, recorded at the same February 1972 sessions as the three other tracks on Dogon A. D. but not originally issued on that album (it appeared instead as side two of his other Arista/Freedom album, 'Coon Bid'ness).

 

International Phonograph Inc. is passionate about unearthing classic jazz performances that are no longer available to the public and reissuing them on vinyl. Because of its special sound quality (second only to analog tape master copies), IPI will issue certain limited edition releases on vinyl. Vinyl is not just a nostalgic look to the past, it actually affords the listener a great sense of the organic presence that existed when the musicians performed, getting one closer to the music. Painstaking care is taken to ensure the highest quality sound, and each reissue duplicates the original vinyl packaging.


Voted as one of the 100 most essential jazz recordings of all time by NY Times critic Ben Ratliff. Dogon A.D. has long been revered as a classic among jazz connoisseurs; Julius Hemphill's relatively obscure but highly influential debut is widely considered the missing link between the avant-garde and populist forms such as blues, funk and soul. The 1972 recording session for this historic masterpiece originally produced four unique compositions, but Hemphill only issued three on his Mbari Records imprint due to time constraints.


"Hemphill, like many of his peers in the aftermath of the 1960s, attempted to reconcile the aesthetic differences between the innovations of the New Thing and the proverbial "music of the people." Critical success was often fleeting for most jazz musicians in this regard, especially those operating in the then nascent fusion scene. This spartan date bears the distinction of being one of the first records to capture an artist of Hemphill's caliber successfully transposing the emotional candor of popular African-American musical traditions—from the sacred to the secular—into the rarefied language of free jazz, without compromising the unique characteristics of either idiom." - Troy Collins, All About Jazz


This remarkable performance is now available (Sept 2016) on a two-disc vinyl album mastered by the legendary Doug Sax. Each of the four performances appears on one side of the two-disc set. This is the ultimate fidelity for an ultimate performance.
