More Info:

Regarded as one of the premier musicians in the world, David Sancious was a founding member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band; toured and recorded with Peter Gabriel, Sting, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Santana, Seal and a long list of A-level musicians; and created groundbreaking music with his own band, Tone. Sancious recorded his most ambitious album, Dance of the Age of Enlightenment, in 1976. Conceived as a ballet in four movements, at the time of the recording, technology did not allow for synthesizers to play more than one note at a time. To create the sound of an orchestral ensemble every part of the orchestration had to be painstakingly overdubbed individually by Sancious on a Moog Synthesizer. Despite the music's quality, Sancious was notified by his record company that the album would not be released. Outside of bootlegs, Dance of the Age of Enlightenment has remained in the vault... until now. Remastered from the original master tapes under David Sancious' supervision.
