The arrival of tenor saxophonist Dick Morrissey onto the British jazz scene in the early 1960s was nothing less than a revelation. Although only twenty-one and having played his instrument for barely a few months Morrissey already had it all; tone, taste, invention and above all swing, as his debut album, Its Morrissey, Man!, recorded in 1961, displayed in winning fashion. Two years later he recorded a follow-up, Have You Heard?, revealing how his already individual voice had matured into one of the best in British jazz.

For many years these albums have been collectors items in and out of print or released only as limited edition imports - but this new Acrobat CD unites this music for the first time ever, together with an overview essay by saxophonist and writer Simon Spillett. It is a worthy addition to Acrobats expanding catalogue focusing on the great names of British post-war modern jazz, and will be a must-have purchase for a significant number British jazz fans.
