  • Description

    Formed in 1963 as the New Jazz Orchestra, the band had an evolving membership featuring the cream of Britain's young jazz musicians

    At the time of these recordings, the band featured (amongst others) Barbara Thompson, Mike Gibbs and Harry Beckett, plus the musicians from Colosseum.

    Material includes Jack Bruce's 'Rope Ladder To The Moon', Ardley's 'Shades Of Blue' and Michael Garrick's 'Dusk Fire', the latter immortalized by the Ian Carr/Don Rendell Quintet on BGOCD615.

    Ardley left in 1971, and not long after the New Jazz Orchestra disbanded, reappearing for a one-off concert in 1993.

    Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with extensive new notes by Charles Waring.

    Also available on BGO Records: BGOCD1520 A Symphony Of Amaranths.
