One of the earliest albums as a leader from British pianist Michael Garrick
– a set that pre-dates his amazing Argo albums of the 60s, and which was originally issued on 10" vinyl, in a limited pressing of 99 copies! The sound here is no less radical than Garrick
's better-known albums of the decade – a mixture of angular edges and more open, free-flowing lines that soar out beautifully with a great sense of joy and life! Although a trio album, the record has all of the same imagination as Garrick
's sextet dates – a sense of space and creative energy that's simply breathtaking – supported by some excellent original compositions by Garrick
, and played by a trio that includes Dave Green on bass and Colin Barnes on drums. Titles include "Sketches Of Israel", "Moonscape", "Music For Shattering Supermarkets", "Take Off", and "Man Have You Ever Heard".
