LOU GARE compilation 1965-1985






















Sadly, Lou Gare left us on 6th October 2017.  He was a true gentleman.

Years ago he was kind enough to send me this cassette covering the years between 1965 and 1985.

He was a woefully under-recorded saxophonist and consequently didn't receive the recognition he deserved.  Although, in his humility, I suspect he didn't mind that too much.

A1. 1965.  MIKE WESTBROOK BAND 'DEPARTURE'   5:41
A2. 1965.  EARLY AMM   8:07
A3. 1970.  AMM   7:44
A4. 1973.  AMM DUO   8:35
A5. 1978.  AMM WITH STRINGS   8:06
A6. 1978.  WEBIT   7:30

B1. 1980.  THE EXETER FREE JAZZ DUO   4:34
B2. 1983.  SOLO BY RIVER EXE   6:59

Thank you for this news, I didn't know. He released a really great solo (unaccompanied) album a few years ago, 'No Strings Attached' on the Matchless label, highly recommended.
