hi all heres a marvelous 2 lp set by famed and revered early 70's freejazz legends the trio. in the late sixties master american bassist barre phillips relocated to europe settling on britain initially(he now lives in france) phillips had made a name in free jazz circles playing with the likes of archie shepp(he appears on the shepp double lp, further fire music),and the maverick composer,clarinetist jimmy guiffre's 1965-66 trio .
phillips was the 1st bassist to record an entirely solo album in 1968,at around that time he also
played and recorded with the spontaneous music ensemble, barry guy's jazz composers orchestra and many others he continues to record sporadicaly.
john surman the best known of these 3 has an extensive catalog of recordings to his credit including many on the ecm lable.
stu martin was a friend (and american compatriot)of phillips who died quite young.
to my knowledge he played with paul bley, and appears on other recordings by barre phillips.
he'd grown up in the bronx and been a close friend of barry altschul's, another fine drummer.
to my knowledge this masterpiece has only been sporadically available.
there was a reissue on cd in the early 90's , but thats gone.

PLEASE BUY CD'S BY THESE ARTISTS,
heres a postscript in the form of an email exerpt
I've uploaded the two Surman discs. Here are the links:- Disk 1 - http://rapidshare.com/files/21480178/Trio1.rar.html-Scans are attached. Rapidshare ground to a halt when I was trying to upload the second disk. If you think they ought both to be on the same host, let me know and I'll try again. The records have no inter-track gaps, one tune runs into another so I've not attempted to split them, so it's one mp3 file per album side.I'm happy for you you to post them to your blog. I am not particularly looking for credit, you can mention my moniker or not, as you wish. I'm just happy that someone else has the opportunity to enjoy otherwise forgotten music.
Incidentally, we lost the cricket (to NZ) and lost at rugby to Wales today ! Not a good day.
