All of your favorites, in one place.
Soprano saxophonist Lol Coxhill always sounds good regardless of what area he is playing in and who he is playing with. This present collection just features his free improvising, but with a variety of partners. The late Hugh Davies was a master instrument inventor. Guitarist John Russell is one of the major stalwarts of the London improvising scene (like Coxhill). Henry Lowther has been a much sought-after jazz trumpeter since the 1960s, but has always kept a toe in free waters. Pat Thomas is a remarkable pianist as well as being a dab hand at getting the most out of electronics as can be heard here. There is also a substantial solo performance from one of the pioneers of unaccompanied saxophone improvisation -- someone who remains one of the best practitioners of the art.
