Glass Bead Games is a double album by jazz saxophonist Clifford Jordan which was recorded in 1973 and released on the Strata-East label. – Wiki


The title tune of the two legendary 1974 sessions featuring tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan with two quartets is a touchstone to the music on the album, which can be seen as an organically whole enactment of Hesse's famous game. Compared to Coltrane's A Love Supreme, Jordan's Glass Bead Games is less prayerful and more playful, less searching and more knowing, less focused on the religious quest than its rewards. The rapturous intensity of the earlier date is replaced by the quiet energies of the benefactors. – All About Jazz
