Frank Lowe Quartet

OUT LOUD

Strictly limited to 550 hand-numbered copies, this deluxe 2-LP edition presents the complete recordings by the hitherto invisible 1974 quartet of Lowe, Joe Bowie, William Parker, and Steve Reid.

$94.00 plus shipping

For what would have been his second album as leader, Frank Lowe captured this cataclysmic quartet in-studio at Survival and in performance at Studio Rivbea. Lowe called it Logical Extensions. These 1974 tapes went unreleased and are heard only now in this rediscovered and expanded volume.  OUT LOUD gathers the only known recordings of this combustible band, with trumpeter Ahmed Abdullah guesting on one track, and a link to landmark video footage of the quartet live at Rivbea.

OUT LOUD's 38-page, full-color brochure and old-school, tip-on gatefold jacket are lavishly designed by the award-winning Svenja Knödler

Ed Hazell explains the music's genesis and fits the group into a loft-scene perspective

• Photographers Val Wilmer and Omar Kharem pluck choice visuals from the rubble of Watergate-era NYC

J.D. Parran's recollections give you director's-cut insight into Lowe's saxophony

• 40-minute sync-sound video offers a revealing peep through the keyhole of 24 Bond Street

Triple Point Records would like to thank Jon Reichert, Herb Van Alst, and Mark Lamb for the bedrock support that has enabled this project.
