Peter Ind: Time For Improvisation

Peter Ind: Time For Improvisation

Regular price £9.99 Sale

This ground breaking play along CD of solo double bass was first recorded and released on vinyl LP in 1967. It features renowned British bassist Peter Ind playing bass lines to jam session favourites such as All The Things You Are; All of Me and Bb blues. The record springs from Peter Ind's experience of playing with many of the great American jazz musicians in New York during the 1950s and 1960s such as Lennie Tristano, Lee Konitz, Coelman Hawkins, Billie Holiday, Buddy Rich, Booker Ervin, Roy Eldridge and Mal Waldron. It is unique in our catalogue because the bass lines do not include any other instrumentation, offering soloists greater freedom for improvisation and harmonic development. On each tune, Ind aims to play simply, outlining the basic harmony, whilst maintaining a strong swinging feel. This is a wonderful slice of jazz history from his 1960s New York loft apartment recording studio that will appeal to all students of improvisation regardless of their instrument.
