5.0 out of 5 stars Lost masterpiece, 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Will Power: A Shakespeare Birthday Celebration In Music (Audio CD)
For anyone interested in late 1960s-1970s British Jazz or in Ian Carr, this is a lost masterpiece. While Shakespeare is the lynchpin of these works, there is enough connecting them to Nucleus, Turning Point or Chitinous Ensemble to make these CDs of interest to anyone who knows those groups. The sound for a live recording is excellent and the works themselves also form a coherent whole.
It would have been easy to compress these onto one CD losing about 5 minutes music but this is not the case and the two CDs remain a shining example of British Jazz in its heyday.
Ian Carr is often quoted as following Miles yet Nucleus' Elastic Rock was recorded before Bitches Brew was released. Outside Nucleus and Don Rendell, his works are difficult to find and it is great to see this release being made available.
With Neil Ardley, Mike Gibbs, Tony Coe, Stan Tracey to name a few and others as well, this is a not to be missed treat.
