Tony Scott

Music For Zen Meditation and Other Joys (Verve By Request): Vinyl LP


Release date: 29 March, 2024

Mostly improvised by clarinettist Scott, backed by Hozan Yamamoto and Shinichi Yuize — on the Japanese instruments shakuhachi and koto — this 1964 album is a precursor to later movements in ambient and new age music, from in and out of the jazz world. This Verve By Request title is pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Third Man in Detroit.
