Continuing the ‘British Jazz Explosion’ vinyl reissue series is John Surman’s and John Warren’s „Tales of the Algonquin” (1971), an album recently included in Jazzwise Magazine’s “The 100 Jazz Albums That Shook The World”. The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album with a coveted crown and praised it as a “masterpiece… [having a] legendary status among British jazz fans”. Featuring a 16-piece band with a 27 year old Surman, it’s a rich sound full of twists and turns – some with Surman’s heavy Coltrane-influenced playing, helped along with John Taylor’s beautiful piano, positioned artfully with Warren’s band – sixteen members that also include Mike Osborne, Stan Sulzmann, Barre Phillips, Harry Miller, Alan Jackson, Stu Martin, John Taylor, Alan Skidmore, Harry Beckett, Kenny Wheeler, a.o. Limited edition, remastered by Gearbox. 180g Optimal pressing, laminated flip-back sleeve, 12x12 insert with new liner notes by Tony Higgins and interviews with Surman, Warren and album producer Peter Eden.
