5 stars - First review of this album -

This is one of my favourite Bert Jansch albums and probably the most proggy of his folk/jazz albums.

He went out on a limb in 1979 to produce a daring, experimental instrumental album that contains 6 tracks with the 18 minute title track being IMHO a masterpiece. On the title track the interplay between Jansch, Martin Jenkins and Danny Thompson is head shaking in its complexity, yet extremely satisfying in regards to it's melodic themes. Thompson does go off on some amazing acoustic double bass solo territory especially on the track Bittern.

The other 4 tracks are superb with Kingfisher being the best of these. To me Avocet is a masterpiece.

Please have a listen, you will not be disappointed.
