Kind greetings good people on the AUM Community list,
And yes, in hopes this finds you all well, four days into Northern hemispheric Summer! Two big news items in this dispatch:
Brand New William Parker 3CD Box Set !
William Parker Residency @ The Stone/New School this week !!
Voices Fall From The Sky [CENT1015/16/17] 3CD Box/DL
Truly a treasure box abounding with gems, Voices Fall From The Sky is an
expansive 3CD Box Set comprising three distinct and complementary albums whose focus is on the voice: the singers, 17 of whom are featured herein -&- the songs, 34 pieces, all composed (music & lyrics) by William Parker.
From a recently published & righteous 9/10 stars review in PopMatters:
"In a career full of lofty goals and incredible highs, William Parker has once again sculpted an album that will stand apart from the pack through beauty alone. Once you take into account Parker's ambitiousness and his strong sense of social obligation, Voices Fall from the Sky rests on even sturdier ground. This is an album to take with you into the next lifetime."
And also some pithy words from The New York Times & WBGO's Take Five.
Physical edition is strictly limited to 1000 copies. Ordering direct from AUM Fidelity also affords a selection of exclusive (and very) special combo offers. Order direct from AUM here >>>
