A.Skidmore, T.Oxley, Ali Haurand - SOH 1979
This remarkable and exciting tenor player never fails to move and lift an audience.
Manchester Evening News.
There are far too few Alan Skidmore recordings available. This one, long since unobtainable, is one of the best I've heard. For most of the tracks, Skidmore is in unashameably Coltrane mode, and nobody does it better than him. Curiously, as a contrast, the track Trio nr. 10 sounds more like Evan Parker. I have my doubts about that track, but it's only short, and the rest of the tracks more than make up for it.
