1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money, 20 May 2014
If it had been possible I would have rated this product with NO stars.Two pieces of industrial tubing which make very poor substitutes for drumsticks. Not recommended .

A great bargain.Excellent,informative booklet.First rate transfers.Apart from a dud by Lalo Schifrin all is well worth hearing.Some classic lineups.Not just historically of interest but musically essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Westbrook Hit, 24 Nov 2013
Another highly original concept from the Westbrooks.A seven part suite(with Kates lyrics for six of them).On paper the line-up would seem restrictive(voice,four sax,drums)but Mikes compositions and arrangements give great variety in melodies,voicings and appropriately witty development.The theme,Man's urge for self-destruction and misuse of the planet's opportunities,may sound heavy but Kate's satirical Fable raises this to a joyous jazz attack.With musicians who rise to the challenge(including the ever-impressive Chris Biscoe)this is yet another Westbrook milestone on a long,satisfying journey.
