Jazzman records did it again and released a collection of highly individual and rare jazz records in "A New Life". The theme behind this selection is as you can read above "private, independent and youth jazz in great britain 1966-1990".
Francis Gooding and Duncan Brooker are the two men who compiled 13 tracks on this release that you will hardly find anywhere else. As much as this is noteworthy it is also a shame regarding the quality of those tunes. Some might be a bit hard to get into while others persuade with their dynamics on the spot. One thing you can say about every composition is that they are very outstanding and distinct recordings. You will find all kinds of instruments playing, elements of spiritual jazz popping up and even an adaptation of a christmas song by "Indiana Highway". So this Jazzman compilation is again as interesting as it is entertaining - and it does both on a very high level.
