In 1979, following his early career with Timebox, Patto, Tempest and Boxer, guitarist Ollie Halsall produced a solo album of his own compositions comprised in the remarkable multi-track recordings that make up ‘Lovers Leaping’.
NEW AUDIO RELEASE: Deckchair Poets – ‘The Crop Circlers’ Guide To Abstract Expressionism’ (SINGSONG129)
Skewing trademark lyrical humour to a diversity of music stylings spanning prog to rock ‘n’ roll, ‘The Crop Circlers' Guide To Abstract Expressionism’ marks a return to the structures of Deckchair Poets’ first two albums, ‘Who Needs Pyjamas?’ and ‘Searchin' for a Lemon Squeezer’ bringing along the exceptional talents of the band’s firecracker line-up.
“Camden '70” by Neil Ardley's New Jazz Orchestra bears testament to the potency of period modern British jazz talent in this live recording of a mid-tour concert at the Jeanetta Cochrane Theatre during London’s 1970 Camden Jazz Festival.
Now reissued by Singsong Music, 1971's ‘A Symphony of Amaranths’ is the most romantic and harmonically dense piece of music that the late Modern British Jazz giant, Neil Ardley ever composed.
