Robert Bloemkolk Except for Jack Bruce, I have never heard of any of the musicians playing up such a delicate storm. Great trumpet playing by Henry Lowther. Great find! Favorite track: Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise.

Nick Bradey Superb release - there must be many
BBC jazz sets , with hopefully more potentially able to be released via Bandcamp .This is part of Britain’s jazz heritage to be preserved and celebrated. Favorite track: Snow.

staceyboy This is just fabulous. I've had the title track on repeat all morning. Two great sessions. We're so lucky getting to obtain these. And on vinyl too ;-)

about

Two sessions previously assumed either lost or unrecorded, by Henry Lowther’s and Lyn Dobson’s mid-sixties groups. Considered one of the missing links in the development of British free-form jazz.

The Group Sounds Four session includes Jack Bruce, who contributes an original composition never otherwise recorded. Also features Ron Rubin, Ken McCarthy and Jon Hiseman. With comprehensive notes by Duncan Heining concerning the historical significance of these recordings.
