THE NEW WORLD Trumpet A 'GoGo - A Strange Album



THE NEW WORLD   Trumpet A’GoGo 

SAGA FID 2114 1968  UK pressing 


This is a strange one - at first glance it looks like easy listening cover versions of classical standards - but it soon becomes apparent that this is something rather more peculiar . There are some clues in the musicians involved  -Graham Stansfield plays organ who was soon to shorten his name to Graham Field and form progressive rock band RARE BIRD in 1969 probably best known for the single Sympathy . Jazz  Trumpeter  Stu Hamer played with the Joe Harriot Quintet  in 1967.    Chick Webb drums  and David Moses  bass played in the Johnny Silvo  Folk Four with SANDY DENNY while Trombonist Mike Gibbs after recording with Graham Collier, John Dankworth, Kenny Wheeler and Mike Westbrook,  in the late 1960s, released his first album Michael Gibbs in 1970 on DERAM .Collectively  they sound like they are dismantling their instruments and perhaps the studio around them .Scat vocals and laughter randomly punctuate  a heavy Hammond organ beat while solos are taken with scant regard for convention “Schehrazade” is simply peculiar with cod oriental vocals against a thumping beaty nightclub workout . Then we have  a  drunken brass band  with   proto-progressive organ . The production is pretty primitive with an alarming amount of echo and no one seems brave enough to have claimed a production credit. 

So its a progressive jazz avant garde psychedelic knees up on a budget label - Which I hope about covers it - . Future cult recording I suspect .
