Duke Pearson – I Don’t Care Who Knows It
The Complete 68’ to ‘70 sessions

Blue Note 35220 / WB001 Double LP

This collection of performances, previously unissued in their entirety, drawn from five recording sessions from 24 June , 1968 to Duke’s second-to-last Blue Note session on February 13, 1970, shows both sides of his musical nature. On one hand, Andy Bey is belting out a backbeat-driven Buddy Johnson tune. On the other, Duke is scoring Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell’s haunting Canto Ossanha for alto flute and alto clarinet. From October, 1969, on his own Xibaba (Brazilian slang for marijuana), Airto Moreira is wailing with both his voice and hands. Soul music from another part of the world.

  • The first ever complete release of the 1968, ‘69 and ’70 sessions on a limited edition double vinyl LP
  • All Analogue mastering: taken from Rudy Van Gelder tapes; transferred by Grammy-Award winning mastering engineer Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios
  • 180 gram audiophile quality double LP
