Harris Eisenstadt Two LPs on NoBusiness Records
Prize: Harris Eisenstadt Two LPs on NoBusiness Records

Woodblock Prints is a limited edition LP featuring Eisenstadt's charts for a nine member small orchestra. Each side exhibits a pleasing symmetry, beginning with a short horn trio, then a longer cut for the full ensemble, and finally a more convoluted mid-length piece.
