DOXY presents a reissue of the George Russell Septet's The Stratus Seekers, originally issued in 1962. Joe Goldberg, from the original liner notes: "'Color' is a word that crops up with great frequency whenever George Russell discusses music. 'Dixieland has a color,' he has said; 'bop is a definite color, and so is atonality.' Following that train of thought, one might extend Russell's thesis and refer to him as a kaleidoscopic musical figure: so many different 'colors,' to use his phrase, appear on this album in so many shifting patterns that such a designation becomes almost inevitable. Colors, kaleidoscopes, and a music that insists on pushing its way out of arbitrary bags and containers. And although Russell's music is experimental, often difficult, and based on considerable technical theory, it is definitely full of just such vivid, electric and appealing qualities." Numbered edition of 500.
