BEN: “Ben” LP Released 18th September 2020

Canterbury-based progressive jazz-rock act Ben only released one obscure album, issued on
Philips’ prog subsidiary Vertigo in 1971, but it’s a lovely collective of extended instrumental
jams, worthy of discovery for those that missed it the first time around. Peter Davey’s
saxophone and clarinet melodies push the material to high peaks, against an understated
backing from future Nashville Teens bassist, Len Surtees and former Graham Bond drummer,
David Sheen, keyboardist Alex Macleery and guitarist Gerry Reid adding flourishes at key
moments. The songs “The Wooing Of The Child” and “The Wooing Of The Man” credit a
certain K Jarrett as songwriter, making this rare beast all the more intriguing.

A1. The Influence (10:08)
A2. Gibbon (9:30)
B1. Christmas Execution (7:20)
B2. Gismo (11:49)
