Expanded together with bonus E & F sides for the first time! Makaya McCraven's breakthrough debut album In The Moment captured 48 hours of live, improvised performances from McCraven and company recorded at 1 venue over 12 months and 28 shows. The edited, remixed, and final product ended up displaying one of the most important recordings to date in the modern jazz world. The feeling still organic and never too far removed from the source material, the impressive, virtuosic playing reaches Sun Ra levels of hypnotic transmissions that keeps the listener fully engulfed in the spiritual plane. A few months later International Anthem issued In The Moment E & F Sides, a further nine tracks from the original sessions that tells more of the album's story. Now after the release of the acclaimed Highly Rare and Universal Beings LPs, with both the original In The Moment and the addendum disc in higher demand than ever, International Anthem present the full session together on wax for the first time ever. Includes the original album on LP 1 & 2, with the E & F sides on LP 3, all housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket with liner notes + obi strip.
