About

On its initial release in 1994, “Sceneries Not Songs” became deep house legend Larry Heard’s first solo album under his given name. At the time, it caused quite a stir on the electronic underground, in part because it saw the Chicago veteran showcase the depth and variety of his musical personality whilst retaining the emotive dreaminess and jazzy inflections that had always been a big part of his work. As this much-needed vinyl reissue proves, it remains a stunning album. Highlights include the sparkling synthesizers, slo-mo grooves and twinkling pianos of “Tahiti Dusk”, the classic Heard deep house warmth of “Midnight Movement”, the head-nodding trip-hop-goes-ambient jazz flex of “Summertime Breeze” and the luscious beauty of bonus cut “Question of Time”
