    • Keith Jarrett recommendations
      Spheres is hep and actually an excellent idea; there's much to said / heard in "old" instruments that's not present or elusive in "modern" ones. Jarrett on chamber organ and / or harmonium and / or hurdy gurdy would also be interesting. People puzzled over or derided the Gurdjieff / de Hartmann album but look how many others have explored the repertoire since I come and go with "Luminessence" but for channelling a certain sober side of the 1970s, this, Glenn Gould Hindemith Sonatas for Brass w/ members of the Philadelphia Orch will get you there
