4.50 5

A landmark in British jazz – one of the first albums of the 60s to really break from an older English jazz style, and set the stage for countless experiments to come! Pianist Michael Garrick leads a tremendous group that includes Joe Harriott on alto sax, Ian Carr on trumpet, Tony Coe on tenor, and Coleridge Goode on bass – and the album blends together lyrical originals by Garrick with a darker, edgier, almost unsettled approach that provides tremendous contrast on a few of the tunes. There's a wealth of color, tone, and emotion in this album just waiting to be discovered – and for all players involved, it's a rare moment of genius that should be treasured forever! Titles include "Parting Is Such", "Merlin The Wizard", "Thing Of Beauty", "Second Coming", "Requiem", and "Song By The Sea".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
