Biography

In 2014, all roads lead to Brazil. As the World Cup draws near, the not-so-sleeping giant of South America will move to centre-stage, and its irresistible rhythms will become the soundtrack of the summer. Cheesy compilations will line up to cash in, peddling worn-out clichés of girls from Ipanema. But for those who want the real musical flavour of Brazil - its super-dynamic present and ...

I thoroughly enjoyed this album and bought CDs by Neil Ardley, Mike Westbrook and Amancio D'Silva on the strength of it. I will probably buy stuff by Garrick and Carr (who died in '69).
I am a little perplexed about never having heard of most of these people before buying this CD. There is genius in some of this music.
I have been collecting jazz records since '73, and the only British jazz I own from this era is by McLaughlin, Wheeler, Dave Holland, Ian Carr / Nucleus, Stan Tracey and Mike Gibbs. If I had been aware this talent existed I would not have wasted my time buying all those sterile ECM and silly Keith Jarrett records (especially the ones with Dewey Redman, but also the solo piano stuff).
You have to blame the BBC who had a monopoly on the media in those days, but also the British jazz critics. As a Brit living in the US I have concluded that they are far too infatuated with what is happening in the US, and don't apreciate the UK scene enough.
The only British publication that gets time over here is the Penguin Guide to Jazz. While it fawns over mediocrities like John Scofield, MMW, Charlie Hunter and Ron Miles. They ignore a lot of British talent. I conclude that British jazz will probably always be underated. This album, however is a revalation and worth hearing.

Curated by French born DJ Gilles Peterson, this album showcases several highly acclaimed British jazz players/bandleaders from the 60's and 70's.

There is a sumptious "Starless and Bible Black" from the Stan Tracey Quintet, "Will You Walk A Little Faster" from Neil Ardley features the vocals of the wonderful Norma Winstone, as well as a supberb title track by Mike Westbrook from an early seventies classic album "Metropolis".

Amancio D'Silva, Harold McNair, Paul Gonsalves and the Michael Garrick Septet are amongst others included in this excellent collection.

British Jazz 1963 - 1974 26 Sept. 2014
By David Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album in 2004 and it was a revelation. This is a great compilation and a fine introduction to the British jazz scene of the 1960s and early 1970s. This is the second volume of British jazz that Gilles Peterson compiled. This was something of a golden era. What is interesting is that most of these musicians don't sound American. This is jazz with an English accent.

I already owned Stan Tracey's Starless & Bible Black which features a classic, sax solo from Bobby Wellins. It is a brilliant track and worth hearing. Mike Westbrook's Metropolis is beautiful. The tracks by Neil Ardley, Amancio D'Silva, and Mike Garrick are also outstanding.

I was a little perplexed about never having heard of most of these people before. I have been collecting jazz records since 1973, and the only British jazz I own from that era is by John McLaughlin, Dave Holland, Nucleus, and Stan Tracey. McLaughlin and Holland had to be hired by Miles Davis before they were taken seriously in Britain. Nucleus never received their due. This album, however is worth hearing.
