◼ JOHN MARTYN:
A live album, Foundations brings into focus the many elements that Martyn has synthesized into a distinctive style - from his earliest folk roots progressing through rock, blues, reggae and jazz.
Jazz fusion in a broad, potent and authentic form, Foundations rebounds from the intensity of the crashing John Wayne to lilting May You Never and the standard, Over The Rainbow. But, geez, what's been torturing this guy's voice box?
