After 33 years The 100 Club Concert 1979 delivers the first presentation of a complete concert performance from Elton Dean's ensemble of Brit-Jazz firebrands known as 'Ninesense'.
A key figure in British improvised music since the late 1960s until his death in 2006, the saxophonist and composer is best remembered for his roles in such groups as Soft Machine, the Keith Tippett Group, the Brotherhood of Breath and the London Jazz Composers Orchestra.
The first of two sets on this important historic release was featured in August and this week we'll take in the second set. Few recordings exist of Ninesense and this recording is a true find.
Also featured is another key figure on the British jazz scene - pianist Keith Tippett recorded in a solo concert during the JUST MUSIC concert series in Berlin in 1987.
Plus selections from the duo of Mike Nock and Laurenz Pike, the late Borah Bergman and the Orchestre National de Jazz from France - which is to perform in Australia in January.
