Modern Day Jazz Stories
2.  Modern Day Jazz Stories by Courtney Pine

There's No Going Back
3.  There's No Going Back by Mujician

Tubbs Tours
4.  Tubbs Tours by Tubby Hayes

Fixations 14
7.  Fixations 14 by John Butcher
The list author says:
  "John Butcher is taking the saxophone into territory that many fear to tread.  Where Evan Parker began the exploration of the instrument's possibilities, Butcher seems to be going one step further."
£15.22   Used & New from: £9.49

Monoceros
8.  Monoceros by Evan Parker
The list author says:
  "Evan Parker is the British master saxophonist.  His work in ensembles is great but his solo work is extraordinary."

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Two's and Three's
11.  Two's and Three's by Elton Dean
