An excellent new album on Gearbox records. For this excursion they've unearthed a previously unreleased mono recording of 'Modes and Blues', taken from the Tubby Hayes Quintet’s weekly Ronnie Scott’s residency. Recorded on 8th February 1964 this recording captures Tubby at his finest. Vinyl mastering and cut by Darrel Sheinman and Caspar Sutton-Jones at the Gearbox studios from the original master tapes courtesy of Les Tomkins. Recommended.
