Chris Biscoe: Music Is: Chris Biscoe Plays Mike Westbrook

Read "Music Is: Chris Biscoe Plays Mike Westbrook" reviewed by Chris May


Chris Biscoe has played in the bands led by the great British composer Mike Westbrook and/or his wife, singer and lyricist Kate Westbrook, every year since 1979 bar one. He is the Westbrooks' first-call saxophonist and clarinetist and the love runs both ways. It also rings out on every track of this beautiful album.

Mike Westbrook: London Bridge Live In Zurich 1990

Read "London Bridge Live In Zurich 1990" reviewed by Chris May

Rick Simpson: Everything All Of The Time: Kid A Revisited

Josephine Davies: How Can We Wake?

Read "How Can We Wake?" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann
