CARTER/WILLIAM PARKER/MATTHEW SHIPP, DANIEL - Seraphic Light (Live At Tufts University)

Seraphic Light was recorded live in the performance hall of Tufts University (Boston) in April 2017. These three masters each possess a complete & total devotion to the music. On this very rare trio meeting they manifest a meditative resonance, replete with lyrical exploration, throughout a sublime set. The concert was part of an event entitled Art, Race, and Politics in America. First was a screening of the 1959 documentary film, The Cry of Jazz. The film asserts jazz is the Negros cry of joy and suffering and the Negro is [white Americas] conscience...if they have a conscience. These bold and timely ideas pushed forward the second portion of the program, a discussion / Q&A with Carter, Parker, and Shipp. For 45 free-flowing minutes, these three men spoke truths, told stories, floated ideas, countered assertions, listened to questions, gave advice, told jokes, and laughed together. Having already established an honest and direct bond with the audience, they then seamlessly shifted their discussion to the musical dialogue presented here. While William Parker and Matthew Shipp are each deservedly world-renowned as players-improvisers-composers due to their extensive recording and performance work as leaders, Daniel Carter remains an underground figure on the world stage; even relatively so within New York City where he has been ceaselessly active since the mid-70s. He is a masterful player of deep lyricism and passion; in possession of gorgeous tone across a full range of wind instruments. Seraphic Light showcases Carter on all of these instruments and in a characteristic style in which his melodies prod and ply, concurrently asserting and suggesting. As he has recently entered his 7th decade of non-stop creation, it is hoped that this recording -- in the company of well-esteemed peers -- will go some measure to increase recognition of the gifts he has long offered. - Aum Fidelity.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
