As saxophonist John Surman celebrates his 65th birthday, Julian Joseph presents concert given by him at the 2009 London Jazz Festival. On this set, he is joined by an exceptional international line-up of John Abercrombie on guitar, Jack DeJohnette on drums and Drew Gress on bass, performing items from his current ECM release Brewsters Rooster. Plus a performance by singer Karin Krog, with whom Surman has performed many times before, giving him the chance to give a more atmospheric approach to his music using reeds and electronics.
