These Selected Recordings come with a light-hearted note from Surman concerning imaginary suggestions from musicians and friends on how to choose from the wide variety of material he has recorded for ECM. One of the suggestions is that Surman should choose a piece from the album he made with the Hilliard Ensemble, to which Surman replies "That's not me, you clot, that's Garbarek!" Like the great Norwegian, Surman is blessed with both an instantly recognisable sound (whether on soprano or baritone saxophone, or bass clarinet) and a surpassing melodic gift that he expresses in ways that are related to Garbarek's but in essence very different.

This attractive, far-ranging and well-sequenced selection of material from 13 ECM albums makes an excellent case for the affecting originality of Surman. It showcases both high-energy and reflective duo, trio and quartet playing with players such as Jack DeJohnette, Barre Phillips and Stu Martin, Miroslav Vitous, Terje Rypdal and Jon Christensen, John Abercrombie, Gary Peacock and Paul Bley, as well as the sort of velvet elasticity of dynamic range and gentle caressing of folk-like melody that the overtly romantic Surman has featured in solo projects, often through the use of repeated loops. Apart from being a soloist of complete distinction, Surman has always evinced great sensitivity and originality as both composer and arranger and it is fitting that these Selected Recordings end with a reflective and beautiful baritone-led piece from Coruscating, Surman's fine 1999 suite for saxophone, double bass and string quartet. --Michael Tucker
