In the Beginning is a double album by flautist Hubert Laws released on the CTI and recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in 1974. The album was later reissued on CTI as two separate volumes entitled Then There Was Light. Viewed, at the time of its release, as a Recording of Special Merit in the estimation of Stereo Review which, in addition, proclaimed the recording excellent, the performance impeccable, and the resulting album a welcome return to Laws' pre-CTI form, In the Beginning would. In The Beginning. Hubert Laws. Clare Fischer. и другие авторские общества 3. SME от лица компании Columbia Public Domain Compositions, Associação Defensora de Direitos Autorais - ADAAF и другие авторские общества 2. Come Ye Disconsolate. The music ranges from classical-oriented pieces to straight-ahead jazz with touches of '70s funk included in the mix. The supporting cast includes keyboardist Bob James on most tracks, guitarist Gene Bertoncini, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Steve Gadd, three strings, and Hubert's brother Ronnie on tenor his solo on John Coltrane's Moment's Notice is arguably Ronnie's best ever on record. Perhaps his finest work from the 1970s, and my preferred album over Morning Star and Afro-Classic or his equally well-known, more classical themed, Rite of Spring. All Music Guide calls the album Hubert Laws at his finest. Whether it be in works by Satie or Sonny Rollins, this recording is one of the most rewarding of Hubert Laws career. Track Listings.
