Saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith had a major role in the British blues boom of the 1960s, playing in the bands of Alexis Korner, Graham Bond, and John Mayall. In all of his work, and particularly in the late-’60s band Colosseum, he ventured into the little-explored territory where blues, jazz, and rock meet.
In addition to doing session work, he’s released some solo recordings.
In the late 80´s he began to work with jazz-guitarplayer John Etheridge:
“Other noteworthy albums during the course of the 1990´s are Dick´s work with The John Etheride Group on Obesession Fees, an eight-track album resulting in a tour of Germany” (Stephanie Lynne Thorburn in her biography of Dick Heckstall-Smith)
This is their second album, recorded live in Erlangen/Germany and is a real fine example of Dick Heckstall-Smith and his very own, very special style of playing jazz-rock.
