Edition of 500; black vinyl. 1967. A year of seismic change in the UK: mini-skirts and Mini Coopers, psychedelic "happenings" and of course Sgt. Pepper. British jazz was changing too: no longer cool and sharp-suited; now featuring beads and bangles and -- literally -- letting its hair down. A new breed of young musicians moved between styles from avant-garde to R&B and taking in current pop. On side one, Rhythm And Blues label gives you Britain's finest and on side two some of the very best music coming out of the States in that exciting, eclectic year. Features Spontaneous Music Ensemble, Johnny Scott Quintet, Ronnie Ross Sextet, Collin Bates Trio, Harry South Big Band, Curtis Amy Septet, Fred Ramirez, Trudy Pitts, Bobby Timmons, and Young-Holt Unlimited.
