Such beautiful expansive music and what a joy to undertake this journey. This is an immersive experience and the dreamscape unfolds in a filmic manner as mental pictures are thrown up and shaped by the sound.
This is a rare treat. The London Jazz Scene of the 60s, 70s was extraordinary. An era of great charts, superb players and increasing innovation. This exudes a confidence and a scene reaching for its own unique voice.
I am a big fan of Nucleus and Ian Carr, and nice to find it on the day I caught up with and interviewed Brian Smith, the saxophonist on this and other Nucleus albums. Some of the finest Jazz of this era. JazzLocal32.com
