Lew Tabackin - Rites of Pan


Sign in to view read count
Available for the first time on CD, Inner City Records is proud to announce the re-release of Lew Tabackin's 1977 album Rites of Pan.

This album showcases Lew in a small group format, and is the first album on which he played exclusively flute. He is joined by Toshiko Akiyoshi on piano, who wrote two of the tunes they play, Shelly Manne on drums, and John Heard & Bob Daugherty on bass. Together they take on some standards like Weill's Speak Low and originals like Akiyoshi's Elusive Dream (written specifically for this session). And Rites of Pan, an improvisation between Lew and Shelly Manne, must be heard to be believed!

This album, long overdue for re-release, is a welcome addition to any fan's collection.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
