  • Description

    Reissue of a superb Elton Dean recording with a band full of Brit jazz luminaries - saxophonists Paul Dunmall and Trevor Watts, bassist Paul Rogers and drummer Tony Levin - from the Covent Garden Jazz Saxophone Festival 1989, which was originally released by Ogun in 1990.

    "This performance was the band's very first gig. That's not meant as an excuse, quite the opposite. The chemistry and the cooperation of these blokes is terrific and made the musical organisation very simple. Since this concert the group has grown and blossomed in an unlimited manner." - Elton Dean.

    The artwork has been reworked and new sleeve notes written for this release. The CD also includes a bonus download recording of the band playing at the Le Mans Festival in 1991 - previously unreleased.

    Elton Dean: alto saxophone, saxello

    Paul Dunmall: tenor & baritone saxophones

    Trevor Watts: alto saxophone

    Paul Rogers: double bass

    Tony Levin: drums
