The Joseph Holbrooke Trio was ground breaking grouping of Derek Bailey, Gavin Bryars & Tony Oxley. No recordings of the original 1960s group were made (only a short rehearsal extract was released in Incus a few years back). But they reunited in 1998 for new sessions that are now finally released here. "Tzadik is proud to present a legendary reunion of three master musicians from the first generation of British improvisers. Originally produced by Gary Todd in 1999, the release of this exciting and historic music was delayed for years under tragic circumstances. These are the first and only studio recordings by this all-star trio whose brief existence in the mid-'60s has been a whispered rumor for decades. Produced in cooperation with the Cortical Foundation, this is astonishing, revelatory musical communication of the highest order."
