A thrilling trumpeter - and his arranging along with his writing is alright too! His fiery trumpet dueling with Henry Lowther on "Watts At Scott's" is a highlight of that wonderful double album package. Great music for those times when you're seeking some straight-ahead, hard-driving sounds. There isn't a serene moment.
By the way, there are numerous other outstanding UK musicians mentioned in the accompanying biography who are well worth checking out including Stan Tracey, John Dankworth, John Taylor, Mike Gibbs, the man himself - Ronnie Scott, along with the brilliant trumpet ace and writer Ian Carr. (Carr's well-researched biography on Miles Davis, to me at least, remains the best. His biography on Keith Jarrett is also superb.)
