Rare double LP by Alan Silva and the Celestial Communication Orchestra entitled "Desert Mirage" - released in the early 80s on the French IACP label. The band includes Arthur Doyle, Itaru Oki, Bernard Vitet, Francis Gorge, Ron Pittner, and more. Great spiritual jazz or free jazz! Gatefold cover is in EX condition with just some tape at spine. These sprawling vistas - like flying and/or floating over vast sky- and landscapes. Immersed but somehow not attached. On this LP the music has sometimes a dreamlike quality (see/hear "Desert Mirage") and au contraire to his LPs on BYG the music here has a more "structured" sound. Not that I would dislike "unstructured" sounds from Alan Silva or per se...

The Silva - as ever.
