Synopsis

Album Description
2007 digitally remastered edition of this album, originally released in 1970. Harold McNair was one of the unsung heroes of the second generation of British modernists. His Parkeresque alto, Rollins-influenced tenor and truly unique flute playing astounded the London Jazz scene in the early '60s. His tenor saxophone was heavily featured on the original 1962 soundtrack theme from Dr. No. Also, In addition to playing flute on most of Donovan's 1960s albums, he was a founder member of Ginger Baker's Airforce. In fact, the roll-call of his associates represents a golden age of musical interaction. Davey Graham, Blossom Dearie, Jon Hendricks, John Martyn, Magna Carta, Don Partridge, John Cameron and Alexis Korner all benefited from McNair's versatility until 1971 when his career was cut short by lung cancer at the age of just 39.
