    A previously unissued studio album recorded by the iconic British jazz saxophonist Tubby Hayes from 1969! The sessions are being hailed as among the very best work in the Hayes discography.

    The legacy of Tubby Hayes is undoubtedly one of the most important; influential and ground-breaking. During the ‘50s and early ‘60s, Hayes had stood apart from many of his UK-based contemporaries, displaying a self-confidence and virtuoso musical delivery that placed him neck-and-neck with many of the leading American jazzmen of the day. He worked with the likes of Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington and his many fans included Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley and Sonny Rollins.
