Daybreak

Flugelhorn, Trumpet – Ian Smith
Amplified Guitar – Derek Bailey
Chamber Organ – Veryan Weston
Trombone – Gail Brand
Tuba – Oren Marshall

For his second CD as leader, IAN SMITH has put together a group with a most unusual instrumentation. There is the brass trio of himself on flügelhorn and trumpet, SARAH (GAIL) BRAND on trombone, and OREN MARSHALL on tuba - three younger improvisers who have already made quite an impression on the scene. Also present are DEREK BAILEY on amplified guitar, and VERYAN WESTON exclusively on chamber organ. Some of the 14 improvisations are by the quintet, however most feature sub-groupings. A different take on the London improvising scene. 70 minutes.
