about

Jazz In Britain is extremely honoured to release a NEW album by TURNING POINT who were a UK fusion band, started in 1976 by bassist Jeff Clyne and vocalist Pepi Lemer, soon joined by keyboard player Brian Miller who had played with Jeff Clyne in Isotope. They became a five piece with the addition of Dave Tidball on saxes and Paul Robinson on drums & percussion. They recorded just two studio albums: Creatures of the Night (1977) and Silent Promise (1978)

The album includes previously unreleased recordings, including two tracks which were not on either of the two studio albums, all available here for the first time as a high-quality download with specially written sleeve notes and a folder of extensive archive material. Also included are a CD cover, tray and sleeve notes as printable PDFs.
