About this item

Originally privately pressed in 1964 as an edition of only 99 copies, "Moonscape" is possibly the rarest, most desirable and certainly most valuable modern British jazz record ever made. As one of the original 10" vinyl copies could set you back up to £2000, Trunk thought it was about time the album had a proper release. Recorded in London, "Moonscape" was pianist Michael Garrick's debut album, a beautiful lunar jazz set. Musically the album has a slightly floaty, drifting sound and represents an early British foray into The New Thing - the free jazz sound of America. Highlights includes include the blissful, melancholic "Sketches Of Israel" and complex 6/8 trip "Man Have You Ever Heard".
