Tristan Louth-Robins An extraordinary feast of Blue's work. Credit needs to go to Unseen Worlds for their brilliant work pulling this all altogether. Feels like a genuine privilege to hear this work. Favorite track: Spirit, for piano, natural and artificial harmonics (Live at Roulette, New York, December 1, 2004).

Pete Dako Blue taps directly into our hearts, transforms and takes us to that sacred non-verbal space where all the best of music and art and life lives. Gloriously generous solo piano + so many more wonderful surprises + compositions here: the "Driver's Son" ensemble performances in Brooklyn & Philly, "Songs From Aphasia" spoken word, electronics "He Was Here" and Ned Sublette's great take on "Double Life" leaving us with a final generous detour into positivity and love with "The Forecaster Hopes" 2019

about

Recorded between 1963-2019, Degrees Of Freedom Found is a six CD set “Blue” Gene Tyranny hand selected from archival, live recordings, and brand new first recordings before his passing in 2020. Part new album, part retrospective, this box offers a fresh perspective on “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s musical legacy. Blue’s career defining moment, composing the music for Robert Ashley’s magnum opus, Perfect Lives, typifies the Buddha-like self-effacement of his musical life. Often lending a substantial supporting role to his friends’ more visible projects, Blue’s music under his own name blossomed in a more esoteric and highly personal manner outside of the spotlight. Across its many previously unreleased recordings, Degrees Of Freedom Found showcases a surprising, extroverted side of Blue’s music, alongside the virtuoso works of sensitive spirit for which New Music devotees have long revered him.
