Re-mastered edition of the 1971 album by legendary musicians John McLaughlin, John Surman, Karl Berger, Stu Martin & Dave Holland.
The product of a recording session in New York City in 1970, "Where Fortune Smiles" is one of the milestone albums to be recorded at a time when the divisions between the worlds of jazz and rock were less defined and albums such as Bitches Brew by Miles Davis and the work of Tony Williams' Lifetime pointed a new direction in music.
Originally released on Pye Records' "Progressive" imprint Dawn Records, Where Fortune Smiles was recorded fresh on the heels of John McLaughlin and Dave Holland's work with Miles Davis, John Surman's work with Mike Westbrook and The Trio (with Stu Martin) - original vinyl copies of the record now command large sums from collectors.
This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Dawn master tapes and features an illustrated booklet which restores the original album artwork and insert and an essay by aficionado Sid Smith.
