Surman/Skidmore/Oxley: Jazz in Britain ’68 – ’69 (Decca Eclipse)

Featuring the cream of Brit experimentalists this LP highlights some of the creativeness going on in the UK scene towards the end of the 60’s. The track included here is “Shepherd Oak”. Featuring: John Surman, Alan Skidmore, Mike Osbourne, Harry Beckett, John Taylor and others. Surprisingly restrained for these particular players who are / were all partial to a serious wig out, this modal track along with several other tracks on the album don’t seem to have received the recognition they deserve IMHO. What do you think?

“Sheperd Oak”
