Karl Jenkins

Penumbra II

Label: Jazz In Britain

Format: CD

Genre: Jazz

Preorder: Releases October 7, 2022

Limited edition compact disc of a previously unreleased recording made at a rare 1971 studio performance by a Karl Jenkins-led nine piece group of stellar musicians.
“At the time, I had taken Karl’s answer to mean that Penumbra II contained no material exclusive to it, possibly consisting of different arrangements of music previously recorded by Nucleus or recycled later in Soft Machine. At it turns out, I was both right and wrong: Penumbra II is previously unheard but does include some familiar music, although not at all what I expected...” - Aymeric Leroy

Includes a booklet containing an essay written by acknowledged Canterbury expert Aymeric Leroy, who interviewed Karl specially for the album, and previously unseen photographs of the band members - Karl Jenkins, Ian Carr, Ray Warleigh, Brian Smith, Alan Skidmore, Chris Spedding, Dave MacRae, Roy Babbington, John Marshall and Frank Ricotti.
