Clifford Jordan's two volumes of sessions under the title Glass Bead Games have long been heralded as some of the most important work of his career. These once rare recordings, previously issued as individual albums and as a two-LP set by Strata East, feature the late tenor saxophonist leading two separate quartets. The second quartet has Cedar Walton taking over on piano and Sam Jones on bass. This session is not quite as adventurous but is every bit as enjoyable, with stimulating compositions by Walton, Cowell, Higgins and Jones. Jordan devours his drummer's "Alias Buster Henry" whole with his far-reaching solo. Jones' blues "One for Amos" was the only established piece recorded for the album, having received wide exposure during the previous decade; this updated arrangement ranks among its finest interpretations.

Clifford Jordan Quartet. Exclusive Prime pricing. From Strata East came Clifford Jordan and his Glass Bead Games Sessions. Named for author Hermann Hesse's book The Glass Bead Game, Jordan and his groups recorded a series of songs in tribute to many of their musical inspirations, some before their time and some their contemporaries. Titles like: "Powerful Paul Robeson," "John Coltrane," "Cal Massey," and "Eddie Harris" are all highly enchanting, intellectual yet grooving numbers, with "Coltrane," appropriately being the most spiritual of the bunch, penned by Lee.

Wow. This pressing sounds fantastic. Dead silent background and amazing soundstage really allow the music to stand out.
Stellar sound on this one, no complaints. Buy with confidence.
It is all analogue from the original tapes? Thanks in advance.
So many years have gone by without me knowing about this album. It is a perfect jazz album that I am glad I finally discovered.
Anyone know if this was an official release? And if so when it was released? Thanks
This was part of a series of Strata East reissues that came out in 2003. I bought several other titles as well at the time. Solid sound.
Hi. It’s a new reissue on pure pleasure records!!/The-Clifford-Jordan-Quartet-GLASS-BEAD-GAMES/p/130352544
Superfly reissue is pure class as always. more words more
Pure Pleasure just announced reissue is coming in march 2019. So...

The price is fair when you consider what you get. PP doesn't skimp for the most part. Their single LP releases retail for $35 a pop here in the U.S. and they are predominately cut from tape by a reputable engineer and pressed at Pallas in Germany. U.S. retail for this double LP is around $50. More than fair for an audiophile release. Most other audiophile labels charge more and have far more "safe" choices in the albums they decide to reissue.
Superfly goes for the limited collector market and their stuff isn't as well distributed. Pure Pleasure mainly goes for the audiophile market and has worldwide distribution.
2xLP, 180gr, license expense, cover print and etc, i guess 40 pounds is suitable at this point..
Yeah, but £40 retail price... what's going on? We just skipping the flippers now and going straight to inflated prices? How about just pressing enough so everyone who wants a copy can have one rather than paying twice the price...
Dancing Lion
Nope, i guess these labels both got licenses to reissue things after each other. Superfly goes first and so on.
This happend with the Shamek Farrah album as well, Superfly did a reissue and then Pure Pleasure did one shortly afterwards. Seems a bit strange.. am I missing something here or is it just coincedence?
And here comes another example of insane price hikes of limited jazz reissues. It’s not ”sold out”, some resellers just want to try how much they can get out of this.
Agree. It's insane the vinyl prices right now. A lot like the bourbon industry.
adventure time
I think that records should be called sold out only after retailers have sold out their copies. But now we already have high prices when retailers get their copies from the distributor. Don Rendell / Ian Carr boxset is a great example of this.
If it’s not sold out where is it on sale still please?
just picked up a copy from Mr Bongo - move fast!
Unreal how fast this sold out. Does anyone know if Superfly does repressings or is this a one and done situation?
You maybe in luck, just seen on the pure pleasure website that they are doing a reissue also due out in March..!/COMING-SOON-Clifford-Jordan-Quartet-GLASS-BEAD-GAMES-PRE-ORDER-TODAY/p/130352544/category=7042056I have a few of their reissue albums and they will be as good as the superfly re issues for sure they are well known for using Analogue sources.Hope this helps.
Pure Pleasure will no doubt release it soon. The pressing will be great, the cover less so.
Going by past releases,it’ll be a 1000 copies and then good night!
superb reissue and a great album. i wish more labels would take the extra steps and deliver such great pressings and packaging.
Great reissue from Superfly Records, as usual. Pressing sounds perfect.
2 x LP reissue is coming Jan 2019 via Superfly Records, Paris.
To get that much music with pictures and images onto a single piece of vinyl not gate fold is crazy man. Twin vinyl gate fold is the way to go.
I also think this this one of the best on the Strata East Label but don't be fooled their are plenty of other good albums/tracks to be had. I have so many its ridiculous at one stage i would buy anything on Strata East that sounded remotely good because i was finding gems on nearly all their albums, but this is a good place to start.Also the track "John Coltrane" has many interpretations at least 7 versions. The Billy Higgins is probably the worst.
This is the best album on the label in my opinion - Cliff kills it. A complete jazz album that captivates you from start to finish. I paid an arm and a leg for this but am glad to have it on wax.
