A class act finally get his overdue respect...

- 10/05/2016

Joe Harriott was the sound of the
future. The only problem, nobody
wanted to know.
Those glorious albums, \"Abstract\",
\"Freedom\" and \"Movement\" predated
the ECM sounds by over a decade, but
Britain was in the grip of \"trad\" jazz, a feeble parody of New Orleans
jazz. Joe\'s sound was so advanced, it was deemed \"non music\".
Then The Beatles came along, and crushed the trad movement overnight, and knocked modern jazz off its\' perch. Even Miles Davis suffered.
As for poor Joe, he became bitter
at his lack of appreciation
He died in penury and neglect in 1973, at only 44.
The marvellous Proper box set, plus these searing classics captures him at the very height of his astonishing powers. He was a great man,and these two cds are an essential purchase. Hard to believe the music is over fifty years old !
