John Surman, Morning Glory (1973 Future Music Records FMRCD 13)

I treasured my vinyl copy of Morning Glory, and I was ecstatic when it was briefly released on CD on the Future Music Legacy label. It's got a great Miles vibe, but with a nice nod to Dolphy's "Iron Man." I bought mine because Terje Rypdal was prominently listed on the cover, but the playing is inspired all the way around.
John Surman: soprano sax, bass clarinet
John Taylor: keyboards
Terje Rypdal: guitar
John Marshall: drums
Chris Laurence: bass
Malcolm Griffiths: trombone.

Sadly, this CD seems long out of print now.



  2. Cracker! I had this on vinyl too - never saw the CD
