Coxhill / Hayward / Hopper / Robinson: Clear Frame (Recommended Records)
Label: Recommended Records    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Featuring the all-star cast of Charles Hayward, Hugh Hopper, Lol Coxhill and Orphy Robinson (vibraphone, steel drums), with guest Robert Wyatt on cornet. Eight strong pieces in a rock-inflected, improvisation-empowered, loose - but not too loose - free-associating open style that has become as rare as hen's teeth today. Clearframe refers back to time when free jazz, rock and all the experimental fringes were converging in search of a polyglot musical language eschewing the exclusions and rules that hedged their different genres about; and all the participants here (except Orphy Robinson - too young) were part of that project and have been shifting genres and evading labels ever since. To my ears, this record returns to unfinished business and does so at the highest level. These chaps know their way around. Clearframe offers a rare opportunity to listen to masters at work in an almost non-existent field. And it's great to hear Lol in full flight."-Chris Cutler, ReR Megacorp
