Ian Brighton is an improvising guitarist known mostly for his work between the 70s and the early 90s playing alongside Lol Coxhill, Philipp Wachsmann, Marcio Mattos, Trevor Taylor, Frank Perry, Radu Malfatti Veryan Weston and Larry Stabbins. He also was part of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble with John Stevens, Trevor Watts and Evan Parker, the Tony Oxley Quartet and co-founder, with Trevor Taylor, of the Alternative Music Orchestra. After an absence of nearly 30 years, interest was expressed when he appeared on Tony Oxley's 75 years birthday album on Incus. This was followed by a release on SoundCloud in 2014 entitled " A Voice You Left Behind " ; a tribute to his old friend and mentor, Derek Bailey. Now and Then was conceived as a way of getting together with old friends through a recorded medium. His son Paul recorded the album and played on two tracks and Ian's old friends Trevor Taylor and Frank Perry are brought together to feature on a composed improvisation track. There is also an exclusive unreleased remastered recording of the original quartet from 1985 and a tribute to Lol Coxhill.
