Collection from ambient music/prog rock British jazz saxophonist
Saxophonist Theo Travis has been a significant presence on the British jazz scene for a couple of decades now, while simultaneously making a name for himself in ambient music and prog rock, notably as a member of Gong and Soft Machine Legacy. This nicely packaged two-CD retrospective concentrates mainly on his jazz output, from his 1993 debut 2 am through to a live cut from 2009, and includes his celebrated take on King Crimson’s ‘21st Century Schizoid Man’. The first disc features slower and more reflective material, while the second is mainly the up-tempo, high energy stuff.
