"Formed in 1971, Nexus is one of the world's foremost percussion ensembles. The group, which still comprises the original members, has delighted audiences, inspired young percussionists, and encouraged composers the world over. Based in Canada, and in recent years the Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Toronto, Nexus continues to tour the world, performing, educating, and advocating the magic of live percussion music.
Nexus oversees its own record label, Nexus Records, for which it has produced a number of releases. They also appear on various other labels. In 1997, Nexus was awarded the prestigious Banff Center for the Arts National Award, being cited for "constant and joyful commitment to the development of the next generation of musicians and audiences" and for being "superb musicians, with a following around the world." - AMG.
"The artists performed each side of the entire original album completely as they would play in a live concert, with the performance continuing uninterrupted as the master laquer was cut - an enormous challenge for the performers. NO EDITING, FIXING OR CHANGING OF THE PERFORMANCE WAS DONE. The reason for using the Direct-To-Disc process on this recording was to improve the purity of the audio signal by eliminating all the analog tape stages." - Nexus Discography.

An absolutely stunning LP. This record is perfect as a "Showcase" for your sytem's imaging, frequency response, soundstage and slew rate. It also just great fun.
The instruments emerge from a background of total silence and appear to be in the room in with you - as close to "alive" sound as you will likely hear. This is a "Must Have" for the true Audiophile/Vinyl Lover!
