Don Rendell / Ian Carr Quintet: The Complete Lansdowne Recordings 1965-1969 (Vinyl box set)

Read "The Complete Lansdowne Recordings 1965-1969 (Vinyl box set)" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Make no mistake, this vinyl box set reissue of the entire EMI Columbia oeuvre of the Rendell Carr Quintet is the British jazz equivalent of resurrecting the Dead Sea Scrolls(*). Although not the first time these ultra rare albums have been reissued (BGO Records obliged fans with these on CD, mostly as two-fers, in 2004) this ...

Jessica Radcliffe: Remembrance

Read "Remembrance" reviewed by Roger Farbey

It seems propitiously timely to be releasing an album commemorating the centenary of the end of the first world war in November 2018 but vocalist and composer Jessica Radcliffe actually began her Remembrance project back in 2014, developing it as a component of her final year at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music And Dance where she ...

The Last Night At The Old Place

Read "The Last Night At The Old Place" reviewed by Duncan Heining

By any standards the release of The Last Night At The Old Place will prove to be one of archive releases of the year, second only, perhaps, to the 'Lost' Coltrane album. All power, therefore, to Mike Gavin who has inherited the Cadillac catalogue from the late John Jack with his first release of archive material. ...

Simon Millerd: Lessons And Fairytales

Read "Lessons And Fairytales" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Canadian trumpeter Simon Millerd is one of those musicians who effortlessly moves between genres. This new CD of his is a collection of work that mixes folk, jazz-rock, electronic minimalism and jazz in original and personal ways.

The opening track, “Looking Back" echoes the glitchy electronics of modern Norwegian music with Millerd's trumpet and ...

Hampshire And Foat: Galaxies Like Grains Of Sand

Read "Galaxies Like Grains Of Sand" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Greg Foat has been making waves on the British jazz scene for several years now with albums such as Dancers At The End Of Time prime examples of his creative originality. He's a big fan of the “golden age" of British jazz spanning the 1960s and 70s but his compositions are never derivative. Foat has teamed-up ...

New Jazz Orchestra: Le Déjeuner Sur L’herbe

Read "Le Déjeuner Sur L’herbe" reviewed by Duncan Heining

I remember reading about this record in Melody Maker when it came out. These were all the people I admired in one band! Yet I never ever saw a copy until one day twenty years later in a record shop in Ipswich, I pulled this gem from the racks. £2.50! I couldn't believe the price or ...

Today's Rediscovery pays tribute to a musician who has been dead for over 30 years but whose brief body of work remains a seminal part of the British Canterbury scene that included groups like Soft Machine, Caravan and Hatfield and The North ...

A remarkable man and musician, the bassist connects aspects of British jazz from the 1930s through the war years and on through the fifties, sixties and seventies.
