This is a domestic ECM White Label Promo copy of the debut album from Jack DeJohnette's Directions. It has Robert Ludwig's initials and MASTERDISK in the dead wax, and this copy sounds wonderful as you might imagine. This is a quintet that features the great John Abercrombie on guitars, musically I'd call it somewhat mellow fusion (definitely more in line with the ECM catalog than Weather Report or anything like that) with the kind of superb drum work you'd expect from a band led by the great DeJohnette.
Vinyl: EX (very clean)
Cover: VG+ (light crease but really nice)
Play notes: Strong sound and quiet vinyl
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
