Mike Westbrook: Live 1972 by Maurizio Comandini, published on November 17, 2017. Appena un anno prima era stato pubblicato l'ottimo album Metropolis e tutto sommato questo Live 1972 è figlio diretto proprio di quell'esperienza. All'epoca, Westbrook aveva messo assieme un quintetto molto compatto in una formazione che era durata poche settimane e il gruppo era stato registrato dal vivo, il 21 gennaio del 1972, sul palco del poco noto Tavistock Times di East Ripley, poco fuori Londra.

Mike Westbrook, leading a sextet from the early 60s and having struggled through the ‘R&B years’ middle of the decade like everyone else in British jazz, became known in the late 60s as the leader of a progressive big band, doffing its cap at Duke Ellington while simultaneously finding room for all sorts of avant-garde-isms and multi-media. His Decca-recorded big band works ‘Celebration’, ‘Release’ and ‘Marching Song’ of 1968-69 were followed by the jazz-pop-ish small-group ‘Love Songs’ (1970), featuring singer Norma Winstone and a guitar for the first time in the line-up (Chris Spedding).

Double album featuring Westbrook with Alan Skidmore, David Holdsworth, John Surman and a wild collection of brass-wielding legends. An anti-Vietnam piece that takes a remarkable journey from civilisation to war and its inevitable results. Mike Westbrook – Piano. Dave Holdsworh – Trumpet, Fluegelhorn. Kenny Wheeler – Trumpet, Fluegelhorn. The first time I had a chance to hear this album before about thirty years. I was blown away then and nothing has changed in the meantime. If you like free blowing big band jazz give this a listen.
