The Old New Thing. A Free Jazz Anthology

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  4 Ratings  ·  1 Review
ESP, New York City. "You never heard such sounds in your life". Founded in 1964, it was the most emblematic record label of the "New Thing".

Paperback, With audio CD, 92 pages
Published 2006 by Abraxas
