about

'...wild and free and very, very beautiful.' ★★★★ MOJO magazine

'Starting Fires is a very appropriate title for an album containing 40 minutes of music that never lacks light and shade but is driven by its unwavering sense of purpose.' Richard Williams - thebluemoment.com

A sensational, previously unheard session by legendary British free jazz saxophonist Mike Osborne, recorded in February 1970 at London's famous 100 Club. From Osborne's personal tape collection. Features two compositions currently thought to be unrecorded in any other setting.

Lineup:
Mike Osborne - alto sax
Alan Skidmore - tenor sax
Harry Miller - double bass
Louis Moholo - drums
