Arthur Russell - Another Thought
Arthur Russell’s Another Thought was first released posthumously in 1994, two years after his death. At that time the enigmatic downtown NYC cellist/composer’s work appeared to be in danger of fading into obscurity, with nearly all of his recorded material either hopelessly out-of-print or unreleased entirely. But in the last few years– thanks to recent compilations like Soul Jazz’s The World of Arthur Russell and Audika’s First Thought Best Thought– Russell’s back catalog has undergone serious renovation, and his work has finally begun to receive the broad-based recognition it deserves. The tracks date from between 1982 to around 1990, catalogued from over 800 tape reels by Mikel Rouse for Point Music, and produced by Don Christensen.
