Album 1971. Filed under Progressive Big Band By MIKE WESTBROOK. This was my first Mike Westbrook album I got it on LP around 1977 and hearing it again after many years I believe it has stood the test of time very well indeed. The re-mastering on this CD is excellent I picked my copy up in 2014, so the sound problems that blighted the earlier release from BGO appear to have been rectified. This new pressing of the iconic 1971 Mike Westbrook recording cannot be faulted. The sound quality is perfect. The whole presentation reeks of quality. The orchestra line up of London's best young jazz musicians of the 70s is remarkable - and to hear them in this context of themed free form and structured improvisation is a revelation.
