About

This CD features Michael Garrick's 1971 Argo album Mr Smith's Apocalypse. Recorded under the name of Garrick's Fairground (conducted by Peter Mound), it is a jazz cantata with music by Garrick and words by poet and Garrick collaborator John Smith. Alongside the pianist, this compelling work features the Somerford Junior School Choir conducted by Mary Tickner, and the instrumental prowess of Don Rendell and Art Themen (saxes, reeds), Norma Winstone (voice), Coleridge Goode (double bass) and Henry Lowther (trumpet, flugelhorn). Also included is Garrick Fairground's rare, two-track 1971 Epiphany Argo EP, featuring the same line-up as Mr Smith's Apocalypse, except that Dave Green (double bass) replaces Coleridge Goode.
