A Friend ,who wants to remain anonymous has sent me this.
John Stevens – Spontaneous Music Ensemble (aka ‘Oliv’)
Kenny Wheeler (fh), Trevor Watts (as), Johnny Dyani (b), John Stevens (perc), Maggie Nicols (voc), Pepi Lemer (voc),
Carolann Nicholls (voc). Rec. by Eddie Offord at Advision Studio, London, February 7th, 1969.
Waiting for Giorgio 14’02 unissued
add Derek Bailey (g), Peter Lemer (p)
Waiting for Giorgio 22’50 –
Oliv I (Stevens/Nicols) 19’33 Marmalade 608008/Polydor 2384 009 (lp)
all out except Watts, Dyani, Stevens, Nicols
Oliv II (Stevens/Nicols) 16’02 Marmalade 608008/Polydor 2384 009 (lp)
This is almost folk like , very different to the pointilism derided as plink plonk scratch by detractors, which characterises most of their out put.
many thanks to the friend
