»Blue« Gene Tyranny – Degrees of Freedom Found (Unseen Worlds, 6CD/digital)

The reappraisal of »Blue« Gene Tyranny's life's work was already in full swing when his label had to announce the death of the US avant-garde composer and pianist in December 2020. The documentary film Just For the Record: Conversations With and About "Blue" Gene Tyranny, released last autumn, is now followed by Degrees of Freedom Found on Unseen Worlds, a comprehensive showcase of his work that brings together compositions from almost sixty years on six CDs. It is hard to believe that this is only a small part of Robert Sheff's extensive oeuvre.
