Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
Continuing remarks feature this time on the original LP notes as cited by Fred “Kermit” Dellar in November 1995 in the CD insert.
“Henry [Lowther] is probably one of the best jazz trumpet players that this country has produced for a long time. Chris Mercer, the best known of the three [or so he apparently was in 1968], commands a lot of respect for his playing, particularly in section [sic; perhaps should be “session”] work. Dick is probably best known for his work with the Graham Bond Organisation. The weird sounds he makes on “Willie And The Hand Jive” and “This Here” is achieved by blowing both tenor and soprano saxes at the same time.* I would like to extend my thanks to these very fine musicians for the way they worked on these sessions.”
*The first person I was ever aware of doing this, and indeed the only other person I know of who has ever done it, is Jack Lancaster of Blodwyn Pig. There is a cartoon on the front cover of the band’s second album “Getting To This” which shows him in this pose, and I shall try to post a photo of it next time.
