SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ENSEMBLE

Karyobin

(Chronoscope) Used CD $18.00

1993 UK reissue of 1968 sessions by drummer John Stevens, trombonist Paul Rutherford, saxophonist Trevor Watts, saxophonist Evan Parker, plus trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, guitarist Derek Bailey and bassist Dave Holland. Despite not playing together regularly, they clearly have no problem gelling and finding common ground. Straight off, they sound like a long-established group on six freely improvised tracks, roaring with coherence and consistency of sound.
