Some brilliant names to conjure with here and some far out sounds too!

when you've had a listen go back to http://www.efi.group.shef.ac.uk/

and check out the musicians and the labels.

the site is a real labour of love.

Rare and Racy on Devonshire Street in Sheffield used to be a great shop for all things jazz and beyond. Magazines (Coda, Wire) CD's (Tzadik, FMP, Incus) second hand books of all description (Philosophy, Politics, Literature, Classics). Walking in on a Saturday they could be playing anything from B.B. King to Sun Ra. Great local improv scene too. Tenor saxophnist and bassoonist Mick Beck is the real thing. I remember a great gig with Pat Thomas on electronics and Paul Hession on drums (at the Grapes, another amazing Sheffield institution) kind of like a free blowing Blue Note organ session, with little instruments and all. Sadly, last time I heard R&R were in trouble.
