Two BBC sessions in very good to excellent sound previously assumed either lost or unrecorded, by Henry Lowther’s and Lyn Dobson’s otherwise undocumented mid-sixties group. Considered one of the missing links in the development of British free-form jazz and this is really great material for the period! Hugely recommended for Brit-jazzers and beyond!
The Group Sounds Four session includes Jack Bruce, who contributes an original composition never otherwise recorded and Mike Taylor’s ‘Black & White Raga’ which was never recorded by him. Also features Ron Rubin, Ken McCarthy and Jon Hiseman. With notes by Duncan Heining concerning the historical significance of these recordings.
