Peter King Quartet: Janus (CD: Miles Music)Peter King Quartet: Janus (CD: Miles Music)
The British alto saxophonist/composer Peter King’s playing is one of the UK’s leading jazz musicians. He is also a masterful composer and on ‘Janus’, King takes on the challenge of writing for jazz quartet and string quartet. ‘Janus’ features the Peter King Quartet with Gordon Beck on piano and the Lyric String Quartet recorded live at the Purcell Room in 1997. Alan Barnes in his liner notes sums up the album when he says this recording is surely (Peter King’s) masterpiece. (New Note)

Peter King & Alan Skidmore: Forever Elvin (CD: Miles Music)
Peter King and Alan Skidmore are recognised as perhaps the major jazz saxophonists of their generation. The late Martin Drew is no less revered internationally, while the reputations of Steve Melling and Alec Dankworth are firmly and rightfully established both in the UK and abroad. That these five musicians came together to pay tribute to a fellow musician is of interest in itself, but when that colleague and friend was Elvin Jones, every jazz lover will want to listen to how that tribute sounded.

‘Forever Elvin’ was recorded at The Fleece at Boxford in front of an audience whose enthusiasm helped turn what was likely to be a memorable jazz gig into a scintillating one. The energy and commitment of the band to this project is a fitting tribute to a great musician, and a testament not only to the musical legacy left by Elvin Jones, but also a wonderful record of the quality, energy, and strength in depth of these five renowned British musicians. Sadly Martin Drew was not to see the release of this recording, so ‘Forever Elvin’ has the dual purpose of honouring not only the work of a giant among jazz drummers, but one of our own as well.

Alan Skidmore Quintet: TCB (CD: Vocalion)Alan Skidmore Quintet: TCB (CD: Vocalion)
Alan Skidmore is unquestionably one of the greatest tenor saxophonists of his generation, whether you’re talking about British saxophonists or saxophonists from any part of the world. His ebullient, virtuosic and passionate playing has been a cornerstone of British jazz ever since Alan – son of the equally legendary saxophonist Jimmy Skidmore – burst on the scene in the early 1960s. Along with 1969’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ (reissued on Vocalion CDSML 8406), ‘TCB’ (1970) is widely regarded as being one of Alan Skidmore’s finest albums, and Vocalion are proud to give it a second airing on this release. It finds Skidmore in the company of such mercurial talents as John Taylor (piano), Chris Laurence (bass), Malcolm Griffiths (trombone) and the late Tony Levin (drums), while on four of the titles the Quintet effectively expands to a Septet with the addition of special guests Mike Osborne (alto sax) and John Surman (soprano sax). Not only is the musicianship stunning, but so is the quality of the compositions themselves, from the pens of John Surman, John Warren, John Taylor, Mike Osborne and Alan Skidmore himself.
