John Surman is an English jazz saxophone, bass clarinet and synthesizer player, and composer of free jazz and modal jazz, often using themes from folk music as a basis. Many of the musical relationships he established during the 1970s have continued to the present. These include a quartet with pianist John Taylor, bassist Chris Laurence, and drummer John Marshall; duets and other projects with Norwegian singer Karin Krog; and duets and other projects with American drummer/pianist Jack DeJohnette. Other musicians he has worked with include bassist Miroslav Vitous, bandleader Gil Evans, pianist Paul Bley and Vigleik Storaas, guitarists Terje Rypdal and John Abercrombie and trumpeter Tomasz Stańko. In recent years he has composed several suites of music that feature his playing in unusual contexts, including with church organ and chorus (Proverbs and Songs, 1996); with a classical string quintet (Coruscating); and with the London Brass and Jack DeJohnette (Free and Equal, 2001). - wikipedia

  5. Hello, BigO, on behalf of those who like this sort of stuff, thank you very much.

    Am I being too optimistic in hoping for some top class Millard captures of classic rock over the festive period?

    Here’s hoping, and thank you in advance.

  6. More Cactus get with the fuckin program

    By Derrick on Dec 23, 2020

  14. Leslie West, the towering guitarist who created the hard-rock milestone “Mississippi Queen” with his band Mountain, died Wednesday morning. West’s brother, Larry West Weinstein, confirmed the musician’s death to Rolling Stone. He was 75. A cause of death was not immediately available, but West suffered cardiac arrest at his home near Daytona, Florida on Monday and was rushed to a hospital, where he never regained consciousness.

  15. Expect Derrick on here today to make some remarks about Jewishness.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2020

  16. The that wasn’t me above . The name stealers continue their childish ways . Derrick, dd , I believe West was Hebrew , his brother’s name is Weinstein, as in Harvey Weinstein, that piece of shit convicted rapist movie mogul who sits in Rykers isle at this time . Jews are for the most part rapists , pedophiles and Wall Street ponzi schemers . See Bernie Madoff and Jeffery Epstein.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2020

  17. When names end in stein , berg or witz , you can be sure that they are Jew filth.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2020

  18. Say it ain’t so triple h , not Leslie West . Did he change his name or something? Just like Bob Dylan did ? That ones really hurt

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2020

  19. I think Lou Reed was a Jew bastard too , so was the members of Jefferson Airplane . That was another hard one to fuckin swallow

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2020

  20. With a surname like Weinstein what do you think bro?

    By DD on Dec 24, 2020

  21. “The that wasn’t me above”… What are you on triple h? Can I have some?

    By Nelson on Dec 24, 2020

  22. Derrick, I told you that a while ago that Leslie was Jewish. Mountain was named after him because he was so large. I felt bout him the way you feel bout Dylan. It was disturbing but at least he had Felix Pappalardi.

    By DD on Dec 24, 2020

  23. I shit my pants 3 times this morning when I heard the new about Mr West. So sad. I was taking a dump to Nantucket Sleighride

    By Corey M on Dec 24, 2020

  24. So did I - and I started all this.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2020

  25. Come on Derrick - WAKE UP !!!!!!!

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2020
