“An incredible, never-before-released series of live sessions from The Ray Russell Quartet, recorded in London between 1967 and 1969. Featuring one of the earliest known recordings of legendary bassist Dave Holland. This is an absolutely unmissable set for fans of Ray, British progressive jazz, and jazz in general.”

“Live is Live!
You are what you play
The experience of live broadcast where you can't try anything before you start is an experience like no other.
Falling in a dream is the nearest analogy.
In these days live was live. Every gig an unrepeatable event. Ron Fry the pianist on some of these tracks passed away far too early. He was ahead of his time in progressive music. This era was a great time for progressive music in the UK. I'm so pleased it has found its way to be released.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible.”-Ray Russell 2020
