British Jazz 1961-1975. A compendium of rare recordings from the Artist's Archives, 1961. When Duncan Heining, author of Trad Dads, Dirty Boppers and Free Fusioneers (Equinox Publishing, 2012) enthusiastically embraced Reel Recordings' proposal to produce a collection of rare recordings as a musical companion for his book illuminating the classic period of British jazz, 1960-1975, it was clear that the endeavor would uncover pure musical gold. The finding of these recordings was met with generosity by the musicians and their respective estates, and they, along with Reel Recordings, are donating all proceeds from the purchase of this CD to the Musicians Benevolent Fund, UK. The musicians represented here rank highly among the many talented musicians from this especially creative period of British jazz as it developed on stages and in studios across London. For some, their reputations precede them, while others have perhaps receded into anonymity. All, however, are unified through a common love for the colors and sounds of vanguardist jazz composition and performance. Today, in 2012, this compendium reveals recordings which will touch listeners, both those who remember the times and those who are just discovering its music, with its beauty, its excitement and its imagination. Trad Dads, Dirty Boppers and Free Fusioneers: British Jazz 1961-1975 is a veritable treasure trove of musical brilliance, made personal and distinctive by individual improvisers and accompanists of extraordinary ability and comes exclusively in a CD edition that will delight jazz fans everywhere. Artists include: Mike Taylor Quintet (1964), Henry Lowther-Lyn Dobson Quintet (1965), John Stevens Seven (1966), Mike Osborne-John Surman Quartet (1968), Joe Harriott Quintet (1969), Amancio D'Silva & Don Rendell-Ian Carr Quintet (1971), Gary Windo's Symbiosis (1972), Elton Dean's Just Us (1974), Lol Coxhill-Steve Miller (1975) and Graham Collier Group & Norma Winstone.
