Bird Curtis Quintet
“NEEDS B”

“Another great release from Jazzaggression… London 1969” Gilles Peterson (BBC6)

“At turns melancholy and exhilarating, the rediscovery of this lost gem of quintessentially British Jazz is a triumph of the cratedigging art” – John Stapleton

The critically acclaimed quintet is back with their second album! Finally available for the first time after it was recorded 50 years ago. ‘Needs B’ is a beautifully crafted set with one traditional and 9 original songs, filed under the classic British jazz sound blending modernism and bop with a strong focus on melody. With a top line-up of London musicians Ian Bird on tenor and alto-sax, John Curtis on trumpet, Ray Shea on piano, Daryl Runswick on bass and Tim Wooley on drums. Comes with new CD inside sleeve and new liner-notes by Daryl Runswick.
