The Mike Westbrook Concert Band: Marching Song, Volumes 1 & 2 (Cherry Red)

In 1969, British jazz pianist Mike Westbrook’s big band orchestra released a two-volume set entitled Marching Song, a deftly covert anti-war conceptual set that is both quite enjoyable and quite poignant in its delivery, and a subtle one at that. This collection compiles both albums plus a third disc of outtakes from the era.
