Danny Thompson Trio (with John McLaughlin) - "BBC Session" - London, UK, November 1967 [FM][FLAC]

Danny Thompson truly is a legendary figure within the music industry. Danny has played with, amongst others: John Martyn, Tim Buckley, Richard Thompson, Kate Bush, Pentangle and Everything But The Girl. The tapes of this set were recorded in 1967 at a long forgotten venue and were recently discovered in Danny's attic. John Mclaughlin is Britain's most renowned jazz guitarist. John has played with Jimmy Hendrix, Georgie Fame, Jack Bruce, John Surman, Tony Williams, Billy Cobham, Charlie Haden, Chick Corea, and many many others and formed The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Miles Davis chose him to play on the ground breaking albums, In A Silent Way, Bitches Brew, and Jack Johnson. The trio is completed by Tony Robertson tenor saxophone, flute and bass clarinet. The set features a fine selection of jazz standards: 2 from Charlie Parker, 1 each from Miles Davis, Charles Lloyd, Dave Brubeck and John Coltrane There are fine solos from Roberts and Mclaughlin and some muscular playing from Danny. Coltrane's haunting fragile ballad 'Naima' receives a magic reading with a heartbreaking short solo from John. This very rare recording offers a chance to hear a short lived world class trio with their interpretation of some jazz classics."

This is NOT the the official "Live 67" CD. The set list is completely different.
