Surman, John / Stu Martin - Live At Woodstock Town Hall (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-52003
Great price on a long unavailable 1975 recording by these two fine players, who had been playing together since joining forces in The Trio (with Barre Phillips) in 1969!

"Reedman John Surman and drummer Stu Martin had both played together in bands with John McLaughlin and Dave Holland in years prior to this recording, and their kinship shows in this loosely structured live recording. At this stage in his career, Surman was still coming largely out of the high energy end of the avant-garde, wielding his baritone as a powerful bludgeon; later on he would move to more pastoral climes in his tenure with ECM. He had always been fascinated by combining electronics (generally in the form of synthesizers) with his reeds, as seen by his contemporaneous sax trio SOS with Mike Osborne and Alan Skidmore, in with electric keyboards. Here, Martin utilizes a synthesizer on several tracks alternately forming a throbbing matrix in which the sax and drums are embedded or a pulsating counterpoint."-Brian Olewnick/All Music
