The incredible sonic beauty of the Sphincter Ensemble results from musical spontaneity, a random jam session undertaken by a loose group of friends in the unlikely setting of the Harrodian Club in Barnes, west London, on 2 January 1972. The sumptuous free jazz/prog rock/avant-classical fusion features top session players at their peak, with Trevor Morais' funky drumming loosely tied to Quatermass bassist John Gustafson's rough melodic lines, embellished by Anne Odell's far-out synths, Martyn Ford's French horn and arrangements by Elton John's orchestrator Paul Buckmaster. This hugely enjoyable rarity is appearing on vinyl here for the very first time - a thing of wonder for all discerning prog fans.
