Modal and Eastern jazz by spiritual jazz maestro Lloyd Miller, originally released in a run of 500 copies in 1967, and reissued for the first time here! This reissue was overseen by Miller and pressed from new stampers made from the original metal masters. The highly sought after album from the pioneering composer, multi-instrumentalist and world music expert finds Dr. Lloyd Miller performing with the University Of Utah Jazz Ensemble, University Of Utah Jazz Quintet, University Of Utah Dixieland Ensemble, and Mike Johnson Quartet. Master of numerous languages and hundreds of instruments, Miller has spent over 50 years submerged in the music from the Middle East, Asia and Europe. Jazz at the University of Utah comes complete with an extensive booklet detailing Miller's story by Francis Goding and an accompanying download card for WAV files and video of late 60s performances as well as Miller's autobiography Sufi, Saint & Swinger .
