LOW STOCK LEVEL
First releases in Tzadik's new Film Music series. "Improvisor, composer, arranger, producer, vocal stylist and bon vivant, Steve Beresford is one of Europe's most charming and versatile musical minds. These varied and and delightful cues originally composed for British film and television are performed by some of London's most brilliant musicians (Alexander Balenescu, Tony Coe, Mike Cooper, Annie Whitehead, Tony Bevan & the Emperor String Quartet). This is the first American release from the wide-ranging Beresford, who has played punk and pop (in the Slits, the Flying Lizards, the Frank Chickens), dub reggae (with Prince Far-I, African Head Charge), improvisation (with Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, John Zorn) and is perhaps best known for his lounge/MOR/TV-theme homage/parody project, The Melody Four."
