“An electronic sound as warm & evocative as any acoustic music” TIME OUT (LONDON)

Urban Green

Urban Green is :
In 1984, I put together a nine-piece acoustic “Big band” called “Soldiers of the Road” which worked around London and played several festivals as well as making a CD under my name called “Innocence”  and two recordings for the BBC..

The concept of the band was a quartet( Elton Dean , Evan Parker, Marcio Mattos and myself) with five brass. Unfortunately Elton and trombonist Paul Rutherford are no longer with us. The new group is a similar small group plus five brass except the whole band is electric. The sound is huge and the band is even more adventurist than the original with a few of the same musicians and some new faces.

Joe Gallivan – Austin

with Charles Austin, Saxophones, Flutes, Reeds, Moog Synthesizer, Percussion.  Reproduced from album format to compact disk in January 2000.  Charles Austin is a creative artist who has slipped through the cracks of the “music industry” yet even at an advanced age is able to keep his skills together as a multi-instrumentalist practicing many hours daily while waiting to be called to perform. Hopefully one doesn’t have to be a musician to hear that his lines and melodies are unique onto him drawing from diverse sources and built in a personal and fluid way. A master of many jazz styles, he a forged a music from ethnic musics combined with a depth only a mature musician with Memphis roots and a thirst for knowledge can even begin to create. This CD originally recorded in 1973 still sounds fresh and vital and you all deserve to hear it. What does Charles Austin deserve?——–certainly not infamy.
