“Pianist Michael Garrick was among the most boldly ambitious British jazz figures of the late-1960s, tirelessly pioneering various new fusions uniting his first love -- straight-ahead jazz -- with Indian music, liturgy and poetry. Featuring two previously unreleased sessions taped in 1967 and 1969, this album charts the course of his music from post-bop convention towards an indisputably "English" jazz sound. Containing provocative live versions of several well-known Garrick compositions and an all-star cast, it truly captures the era in which UK jazz began to loosen its collar and let down its hair.”
