Graham Bond: Live At The BBC And Other Stories

Album Review

Four-disc set from pioneering bandleader.

On this collection of radio sessions and one-off studio liaisons, Graham Bond’s inspirational presence is clear from his first touch on the Hammond organ.

Introduced by George Melly, recorded live in a cinema in London’s West End and broadcast on the BBC’s Jazz Club in April 1963, the opening cover of The Modern Jazz Quartet’s Bluesology packs swagger and ferocity aplenty.
