Â Soviet Grail presents an extended official reissue of the â€œThe Taste of Pomegranateâ€ LP by the Uzbek jazz-rock and fusion band Anor led by maestro Gregory Pushen. Pushenâ€™s name might be familiar only to the most enthusiastic diggers and collectors, since he was one of the members of the early lineup of Yalla vocal and instrumental ensemble. This full-length album was originally released in 1988 and was produced by the republican division of the Soviet recording giant Melodiya. By old standards the circulation was very small: various sources claim that the total number of printed copies did not exceed 2000. This explains why itâ€™s so hard to find â€œThe Taste of Pomegranateâ€ on the current market. Looks like the first print run still graces the collections of jazz-rock and oriental flavored jazz admirers! It took quite a long time for us to prepare this reissue. First, we had to locate the leader of the band Gregory Pushen (who currently resides in the state of Philadelphia, USA), and then search for the original master tapes.
