The Entourage Music And Theatre Ensemble Entourage on LP
Formed in Baltimore, MD in the early 70s, The Entourage Music and Theatre Ensemble
played a kind of experimental, ambient, new age, proto-world music, made to accompany multimedia performance art pieces. The first album by the Entourage Music and Theatre Ensemble
uses saxophone, keyboards, percussion, viola, recorder, guitar, drums and thumb piano to explore an"experimental-spiritualistic environment" and builds improvised soundscapes reflecting techniques from many sources, including Noh Theater, Balinese Theatre and traditional and avant-garde Western multimedia. Entourage
is the first of two albums they released on Folkways Records
, reissued lovingly on vinyl here in an exact replica of the original jacket and booklet.
