Groundbreaking work from one of the most unsung heroes of British jazz – tenorist Alan Skidmore, a player with a tone and a talent that took him through many settings in his day! This 1970 album is one of Skidmore's greatest moments in the studio – a blend of jazz styles that includes some of the freer-thinking ideas that were coming out of England at the end of the 60s – styles influenced by European modal jazz, American avant garde, and some of the jazz/rock crossover that many of Skidmore's contemporaries were helping to forge at the time. The group's a quintet with John Taylor on piano and electric piano, Chris Lawrence on bass, Malcolm Griffiths on trombone, and Tony Levin on drums – and on about half the tracks, they're joined by Mike Osborne and John Surman, who expand the group's power for a few full-on "out there" numbers. Titles include "Jack Knife", "Lantern Wood", "TCB", "One On One Off", and "Walk In & Dance Out".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2001. New Copy
A raw, live set from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – but a great little record that really reminds us of a classic 60s session on ESP! Boykin's reeds are wonderful throughout – filled with the depth of soul we might expect from Kalaparusha or Albert Ayler – and set up here in ... CD
