SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ORCHESTRA: Search and Reflect 1973-1981
Another historic document featuring larger ensembles and a wider sampling of the London improvisers pool, including John Stevens Trevor Watts, Nigel Coombes, Roger Smith on all and Lol Coxhill. Jon Corbett, Alan Tomlinson, Paul Rutherford, Howard Riley, Maggie Nichols, Ian Brighton, Lindsay Cooper (the male bass-player), Colin Wood, Marcio Mattos and Jane Robertson – as well as 11 members of John Stevens’ current workshop. The CD bearing the 1975 large ensemble performance in Smith Square is perfectly pitched, and shows that 21 people can work intelligently together and stay on top of dynamics and densities, although the result has a certain homogenized character as a result. Probably best listened to slightly louder than you’d assume.
