descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Mike Osborne was one of the most adventurous saxophonists to emerge from the transitional 1960s/70s period in British jazz - after the strict harmonic rules of bebop were transformed by the free jazz of Ornette Coleman. Osborne worked in Mike Westbrook's pioneering big band, and in the vivid South African groups of Chris McGregor - but this 1976 live recording represents the late saxophonist at his freest. He performs here with regular bassist Harry Miller and Birmingham drummer Tony Levin - both inveterate envelope-pusher, and with them Osborne's soulful, somewhat Jackie McLean-like sound takes wing. Osborne's own pieces are full of biting lyricism and unexpected playfulness, while he's brittle and urgent over Miller's flying bass walk on John Coltrane's Cousin Mary, drily unsentimental on Sonny Rollins' Alfie, and bounces off Levin's potholed-road thumps on Thelonious Monk's Nutty. This isn't just a relic of an undocumented group, but a grippingly original jazz performance by any standards."-John Fordham, The Guardian, UK

Artist Biographies:

"Harold Simon "Harry" Miller (25 April 1941 - 16 December 1983) was a South African jazz bass player, who settled in Europe, becoming one of the UK jazz scene's "most vibrant and dynamic talents".

Miller was born in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. He began his career as a bassist with Manfred Mann, and went to settle in London, England. He was a central figure in the mixture of South-African township music and free-jazz that dynamised the scene in London at the end of the 1960s and into the '70s. Miller recorded frequently with musicians such as Mike Westbrook, Chris McGregor, John Surman, Mike Cooper, Louis Moholo, Keith Tippett and Elton Dean.

At the end of the 1970s he moved to the Netherlands for economic reasons, where he worked with musicians of Willem Breuker's circle. Miller also appeared on the album Islands by the progressive rock band King Crimson, in 1971 as session musician.

Miller died in a car crash in the Netherlands in 1983.

The record label Ogun Records, which he founded with his wife Hazel Miller, was vital for documenting that period, and is still active today."
