Hard bop BBC recordings from 1956. Scott with Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Terry Shannon on piano, Lennie Bush on bass and Allan Ganley on drums; Seamen’s lineup features Joe Harriott.

These pricey Gearboxes aren’t a Simply Vinyl style con. They painstakingly revive lost recordings, from original tapes, with valve equipment — here from a house-party somewhere in East England in 1956.

Previously unissued, with the Michael Garrick Trio in 1964. A studio recording, so Gearbox’ restoration efforts really shine. Gorgeous saxophone playing, somewhere between Getz and Rollins. Lovely.

A quartet with Graham Bond, in 1962.
