Description

A pioneering contributor to the burgeoning modern British jazz scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s, Howard Riley was - and has remained - one of the genre's most original and individual talents. This new reissue of his Trio's highly collectable 1968 debut release - only 99 copies were pressed - features the talents of rising stars Jon Hiseman and Barry Guy and is enhanced by the inclusion of previously-unreleased recordings of Riley's original trio of 1960. The choice of material is broad, the key point being to render it freely and interpretively, to let players take it in directions of their choosing. The original eight tracks were down in single takes, the band choosing music that members' felt represented their aim, mixing and matching styles and moods, ranging from covers to Riley's own compositions. In 1967, hard categories like 'free jazz' had not come into being. The very absence of categorisation led to a greater openness and freedom for Riley and musicians sharing his aims. 'Discussions' set him on the road to record with David Howells at CBS, Peter Eden at British indie Turtle, together subsequently with other labels in the UK and continental Europe, right up to the present day.
