JOHNNY SCOTT QUINTET - PURCELL VARIATIONS FOR FIVE



























Johnny Scott Quintet for Fontana UK from 1970.

Johnny Scott - Flute ; David Snell - Harp ;  Duncan Lamont - Sax ; Barry Morgan - Drums ; Arthur Watts - Bass

More superb Brit jazz from the magnificent Johnny Scott Quintet.The title is derived from a set of compositions (which make up side 1) written by Scott for a concert at The Purcell Room in London.Side 2 is made up by 4 more originals a couple from Lamont and one each for Snell and Scott. This is music of the highest order which seems to have been lost to obscurity with little or no mention of it anywhere from print to web.
Very highly recommended & big thanks to Quimsy for putting me on to it.
