This record is a Danish TV performance recorded on August 5 1967 that has never released on vinyl until now. Dexter Gordon is heard at his best and most powerful on these three tracks of the hardest bop, the swingingest Afro-inspired music and the most tender of ballads recorded on a hot Summer's day at Magleaas High School in front of an audience of young musicians.

Yusef Lateef: Live at Ronnie Scott'sLive at Ronnie Scott's January 15th 1966
This is a previously unreleased live club performance from Yusef Lateef, the brilliant multi-instrumentalist whose mixing of jazz and Eastern music was a great influence on some of the finest musicians of the era including John Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders.
Accompanied at Ronnie Scott's by the house band of pianist Stan Tracey, double bassist Rick Laird and drummer Bill Eyden, most of the repertoire played comes from Lateef's earlier recordings for Savoy and Prestige such as Jazz Moods and Eastern Sounds. Lateef plays flute on The Dreamer and Last Night Blues (it was the last night of the run). He plays the shenai - a kind of oboe - on Blues from The Orient, the xun - a Chinese flute - on Song of Delilah, and tenor saxophone on Yusef's Mood.
The evening's performance was recorded by Les Tomkins at the request of Ronnie Scott. The musicians were unaware they were being recorded as Scott believed they would be at their best and most unselfconscious this way. This record was mastered at Gearbox Records directly from the original 1/4" tapes.

Modes and Blues: 8th February 1964
Live At Ronnie Scott's
This is a previously unreleased mono recording of Modes and Blues from the Tubby Hayes Quintet's weekly Ronnie Scott's residency on 8th February 1964. Regarded as one of the masterworks of British modern jazz, Modes and Blues shows the Quintet at the very height of its powers, channelling the new musical flavours and inspiration that Tubby Hayes had absorbed from the cutting edge of jazz and the new directions of John Coltrane.
Recorded with Hayes' approval by Les Tomkins on his Ferrograph tape recorder, this is one of the most engrossing of all his stretch-out epics. Hayes digs in deep with marathon and breathtaking soloing, trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar delivers his characteristically lyrical improvisation, and there's dynamic interplay and drive from the great Terry Shannon, Freddy Logan and Allan Ganley rhythm section.
The Quintet had barely a few months left to run at the time of this performance, splitting in August 1964, fearing its music had atrophied into self-parody. Modes and Blues is among its many triumphs, a performance that shows how high the band had set the aspirational bar for British modernism, and, as such, is as much a cultural document as a musical souvenir.1.

Brilliant! Tragic!We're going to be the band that writes the song that makes Israel and Palestine get along, is what Art Brut promised the world on their 2005 debut album Bang Bang Rock & Roll. And even though the situation in the Middle East hasn't improved, their bold promise put the London art wave band on the musical map.
Brilliant! Tragic!, their newest album and fourth overall, was produced by the legendary Black Francis of the Pixies as was their 2009 release Art Brut vs. Satan. We had more time in the studio, so Black Francis had time to teach me to sing, lead man Eddie Argos explains.
Brilliant! Tragic! offers up a singing/mumbling slacker attitude with sawdust in the gearbox, verbosely funny lyrics, and cover artwork courtesy of Image comic book artist Jamie McKelvie.1. Clever Clever Jazz
