3 stars It was actually a huge relief for me to read fuxi's review of this album. I had my review written and as per usual I like to check out the various opinions on the Web. All I found was nothing but praise for this live album. I just haven't been getting into this record like I thought I would and I agree with fuxi on so many points that I guess I feel vindicated somewhat.

First of all for an album that's adverised as having a strong Canterbury flavour I didn't taste it at all. No distorted organ ,no avant passages except for some dissonant horns in one place. No lyrics so no humour in that way. Mostly this is fairly tame Jazz with a lot of brass and violin. I wasn't even a fan of the violin playing. Some good guitar but not enough of it. The musicianship is fantastic here and I was impressed quite often, I just wish there were some dark moments or weird secions or some smoking Fender Rhodes, something that turns me on musically. There are 4 tracks totalling almost 71 minutes, the longest is almost 35 minutes in length.

This is really good but I have so much already in this style that I consider far better. Three stars, but remember most will rate this one higher so it's worth checking out.
