UK saxophonist Alan Wilkinson's second solo release since his 1994 "Seedy Boy", two session marking the end of his Dalston, London practice space, and one from his new rehearsal studio.

Wilkinson, Alan

Wilkinson, Alan: Practice (Bo Weavil Recordings)
Label: Bo Weavil Recordings    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Saxophonist Alan Wilkinson's first solo release Seedy Boy was released on Bruce's Fingers in 1994, which consisted of a collection of solo recordings made in a variety of situations over a number of years. Practice, on the other hand, is from two recording sessions, the first to mark the end of the carpeted cell Alan used as a practice space for some years in an old hospital in Dalston, London. The second is from the purpose-built rehearsal studios. It seemed an injustice that such a great and underrated saxophonist should not have a CD release cataloging his solo performances, so it was natural for Bo' Weavil to ask Alan to record such a project. The results are an outstanding number of pieces showing where Alan got the nickname "Iron Lungs Wilkinson," while also showing the more subtle jazz side to his playing as on Ornette Coleman's Lonely Woman."-Bo 'Weavil
