about

'If you have fond memories of the earlier record, you’ll want to hear this. If not, start here. Like others from this enterprising new label, it’s a release of much historical interest that still has lots to offer even if the history isn’t your thing.' Jon Turney - London Jazz News 03/2021

'Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows Live '75 features a far longer score, at one hour and forty-two minutes twice the length of the studio edition. It is recognisably the same piece of music but a substantially different one, too, and not just in duration. And it is another stone masterpiece.' Chris May - All About Jazz 03/2021

'Jazz in Britain can be pleased with the production, obviously a labour of love. The two CDs are cased attractively, Obviously a great deal of work has been expended to bring the tapes from the archive up to a good standard.' Jack Kenny - Jazz Views 04/2021

'...a terrific find from the vaults from the ever-interesting Jazz In Britain label.' Thomas Patterson - Shindig Magazine 05/2021

Previously unreleased. Recorded live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, on the 20th October 1975. This is (almost) the complete Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows suite as originally imagined by Neil Ardley, over twice as long as the 'concise' version which appeared on his Gull studio album a year later.

Unfortunately, due to tape issues on the night, only the first two minutes of the closing number of set one were captured. Otherwise, this album is presented exactly as the audience would have heard it that evening.

Front cover: Neil Ardley's 'Stereo "picture" of personell.'
