James Blood Ulmer - Odyssey (Vinyl Reissue)

Odyssey stands as Ulmer's signature masterpiece, the purest and most accessible showcase for his bold, genre-clashing guitar vision. With minimal accompaniment - only drummer Warren Benbow and violinist Charles Burnham - Ulmer's guitar is always the meat of the ensemble, covering bass parts as well as guitar leads.

AllMusic's Steve Huey calls it 'not only Ulmer's finest album, but a certified classic of the modern jazz avant-garde.' Now Odyssey finally gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, in the form of a double LP, mastered at 45RPM by Bernie Grundman, pressed on 180gram vinyl, and housed in case-wrapped gatefold jacket.
