Yes. He's British. In an interview he has said that before starting love jazz he was listening to heavy metal. Also, I agree with David that Jamie Cullum is not really of my taste. Maybe because his compositions have a poppier side.

Oh yes! I've never heard Zappatistas, but I've always been fan of Etheridge's guitar style, his outstanding performance on British Tour '75 by Soft Machine is a must.

Phil Miller's In Cahoots, particularly album All That

..and I disagree that rock's main artists come from outside the U.S.   America invented, perfected and continues to produce the best rock bands in the world.  I'm not talkin' pop-rock or metal or any other variation, but the best, the most authentic rock 'n roll in all its ugly glory, came and continues to come from North America.

John Surman is one of my favourites
I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

Jamie Cullum is in British scene similar to Kenny G. in American, so - it's just more question of tasteLOL.


Speaking about more modern British jazz (or related)  two names could be mentioned  - Led Bib and TrioVD.

I know Rico loves Keith Tippett's albums, but I'll let him talk about them as I haven't heard any.

Not including bands from  Canterbury, Jazz-Fusion or Prog cuts off quite a lot of the bands I heard and like (of which Soft Machine and Colosseum would be the most impressive).

Yes, I do think Tippett's first two albums are very good. It gets very weird from there on, even for free-jazz standards. I've kept some other albums in my collection (Mujician, something with Louis Moholo, the very heavy sessions of A Loose Kite in a Gentle Wind Floating with Only My Will for an Anchor, ending with a piece dedicated to Mingus...), but I'm not too impressed. His piano improvisations turn profoundly shardy.

Elton Dean (Ninesense) should follow soon.
I will also approach Evan Parker's discography sooner or later.

Nationality aside, McLaughlin and British jazz do not compute for me.

Julie Tippets-Driscoll's two album Sunset Glow and 1969 are astounding as well.

Phronesis are considered at least part British
Neil Cowley is also British, I liked his 2010 album
Andy Shepperd's Movements In Colour  is also very good

Come on guys so far not one mention of Victor Feldman.  A musician's musician from England.  He worked with everybody from Miles to Zappa. Checkout this Youtube from 1965 (note the bass player, soon to be original Mahavishnu Orchestra member Rick Laird)

If you like freer stuff in the vain of Coleman and Dolphy check out Joe Harriott (originally born in Jamaica). I can only vouche for his album Abstract (the other tracks I've heard have not struck me as special)   



Prick to find so blogs might be the best option (unfortunately couldn't find anything on youtube for this album)

Graham Collier is amost as good as Ian Carr and his late 60's and early 7's albums are tremendous
 
Also worth mentionning: Harry Beckett

I've suggested Don Rendell (who played much with Ian Carr before the latter formed Nucleus
 
 
And also Neil ardley as well. (roughly the same crowd)
my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicted musicians to crazy ones....

Interesting. I'll listen more to those artists. Nucleus are nice!
