Roland P. Young - Hearsay I-Land
Palto Flats has reissued the second release that brings together songs recorded for two different albums by Roland P. Young in the 80s. Selections are included from 1984s I-Land and 1987's Hearsay Evidence. These are crucial additions to a canon that includes deep, spiritual jazz work from a top musician, songwriter, and enthusiastic player in both experimental music scenes and the dance club scene of 1980s NYC.
"There was a lot of cross-pollination of sounds happening... And that's what I'd really been about anyway, mixing various sounds together and coming up with another kind of sound in itself."
