Available to stream and download. I would recommend you hear it if you can (and I appreciate you don't 'do' vinyl anymore)

The Graham Collier Septet - Deep Dark Blue Centre [Deram, mono]

This lights up the room every time I play it, revealing new delights.  Possibly the best British Jazz album for me.  This listening prompted by starting the Harry B biography.

Wow. High praise.

I have several Collier albums, but not that one.  Need to check it out!  :tup

Ah yes, a real stunner! (mine is stereo)

Had a great time many years ago interviewing Graham -- wonderful man, he is missed.

When the BGO CD was being prepared, Graham wasn’t even aware that a stereo version existed. That CD was the first issue of the stereo version - taken from LP. I guess the tapes must be lost.

The biography on Northway is highly recommended. A complex character - who indeed is missed !

:tup  Have it on vinyl but Clark T. sold me a copy of his ‘Resteamed’ CD reissue after a gig by his very fine young Quintet.

That’s Stan’s wife Jackie on the cover I think.

Joe Albany - Proto-Bopper, on Revelation, 1972. A decent quality recording, I especially enjoyed the solo part of the program. Interestingly, some of the tunes credited as 'standard', even though the composers are well-known.

Thank you, I'll keep my eye out for a copy.  Just listened to the entire album on youtube, and wouldn't mind buying a cd, if one becomes available. The original Deram LPs go for $300 or thereabout. 

I enjoy good modal jazz, and this is a good one.

There was a story that Universal would be reissuing ‘Deep’ on LP and download as part of a new British Jazz Reissue series which was announced about 6 months ago but so far - no word.

The BGO CD is already getting scarce - and expensive. The feedback when it hit the market was that the stereo version provided new insights and nuances over previous issues.

Ah - the Dipple Mole !

Any fans of Stan are recommended to check out Geoffrey Smith’s short but comprehensive tribute on BBC Radio 3 broadcast Thursday night.

My only CD version is the McMaster. Valuable for the additional tracks. The sound on this Tone Poet edition is far superior though, lovely and crisp. Never heard the King of this one !
