There is a general belief, that the surviving master tapes from the sound recording studio of the giant Soviet Melodiya label is a myth. More so, this myth pertains to the label's republican divisions. This is partially true, but not in the case of Leonid Atabekov, the leader of SATO Ensemble. During the last days of the Soviet Union's collapse, he showed up at the studio's doorstep and bought out master tapes of the original recordings of his two albums 'Efsane' and 'Pass Around The Good'. Since then he has treasured this purchase. Thanks to the owner's safekeeping, these master tapes were identified on the insert's photo, thus enabling Soviet Grail to prepare the first official reissue of this Oriental Jazz pearl of the
Soviet era. 'Efsane' means 'Legend' in Uzbek language.
