Description

LABYRINTH: BRITISH JAZZ ON RECORD 1960 – 75

 

This utterly engrossing feast focuses on the ‘golden period’ of British jazz, when boundary-breaking and experimentation first broke through. Featuring large sleeve reproductions (both front and back), period reviews, historical overviews and vintage music press adverts, Labyrinth finally puts this music on the pedestal it rightly deserves  Jon Newey (editor, Jazzwise)

 

Written by Richard Morton Jack (Galactic RamblePsychedelia, Nick Drake: The Life),  Labyrinth is a massive limiyed edition hardback, 375pp in length, printed on high-quality art paper, with an embossed cover and cloth quarter-binding,.

 

It celebrates over three hundred albums, offering detailed background info about each, alongside excerpts from original reviews and masses of high-quality images that reproduce their fabulous artwork and labels at near-full size. It also features a fascinating introduction by Tony Reeves (Mike Taylor Quartet, New Jazz Orchestra, Colosseum etc). 

 

Covering abstract jazz, avant-garde jazz, serial jazz, free jazz, Indo-jazz, jazz-rock and more, it tells a story Britain should be proud of: open-minded and creative musicians pushing the boundaries of their art in the face of penury and indifference, and welcoming influences from a range of other cultures via immigrant musicians such as Joe Harriott (Jamaica), Amancio D’Silva (India), Guy Warren (Ghana) and Harry Beckett (Barbados). 

 

Some sample pages can be seen above. 

 

Each copy is shrinkwrapped and will be sent double-boxed for maximum protection.
