Best of Bossa Nova - Duncan Lamont

Tasty tasty tasty – a very nice buy today for a cool 50-new-english-pennies.  Duncan Lamont in fine fine style on this 1970 MFP release.  Big fat upright bass, swinging-rythm-sticks, a nice alto-sax and some fine playing on the old ivories – all arranged superbly in an improv-jazz style – at times quite funky indeed !

To quote the notes – “Eight leading musicians, each an artist in his own right, each recognized for his own particular style and technique, have joined forces under a common banner – namely that of Bossa Nova“.

A call-to arms it would appear from the old-jazzers…   Forget the Rockers-n-Teds from the 50s, the Kool-Aid-wig-out-kids of the 60s, Punks (blaaahhh) – and don’t even bother mentioning Accciiiiiddddddd … The REAL REVOLUTION sure as hell was not televised, but emerged writhing from mono-players across land – “induing a feeling of complete harmony and relaxation – a state of mind which few other forms of music can help to attain”. – YEAH !
