Wicked, wicked, WICKED British Jazz album! A modal monster!

'Promises' is certainly one of the very best albums within the Garrick canon and sports some equally legendary names including Joe Harriott (alto sax), Ian Carr (trumpet & flugelhorn) and Tony Coe (tenor sax & clarinet). Regular Garrick sideman Shake Keane was scheduled to appear, but shortly before the recording sessions left for Germany to join Kurt Edelhagen’s radio band, hence Ian Carr’s presence.
