about

"For Avant-Garde / Improvised Music enthusiasts, this is a Holy Grail!" - Adam Baruch BRITISH JAZZ

A reissue of the Incus Records LP, originally released in 1977. Crisply recorded in Vangelis’ London studio, and mastered for re-release under Oxley’s personal supervision.

This album is a classic example of UK free improvisation by one of the originators of that style, with the added dimension that the playing is framed within Oxley’s forward looking compositional frameworks.

The collective personnel play in quartet and trio configurations, detailed and collective sounds from strings, percussion and electronics. But perhaps the two centrepieces of the album are Oxley’s solo tracks, where his extended use of drum kit and amplified objects is clearly underpinned by pure jazz skill.
