Although recorded less than a year earlier, ‘Flute & Nut’ could not be more different than ‘The Fence’. ‘Flute & Nut’ is a collection of jazzy, mostly flute led instrumentals featuring big band and string arrangements by John Cameron with no rock influences whatsoever. A pleasant listen, and the work of a gifted flautist, nonetheless.

Flute and sax player Harold McNair is best known to pop and rock fans for his work as a session man on numerous Donovan recordings. However, he did come from the world of jazz, and it's not a surprise to find that this 1970 album (released shortly before his death) is very much an instrumental jazz recording. At the same time, it's not wholly devoid of influence from pop, rock, folk, and blues, particularly as some of the players will be recognizable to many rock fans.

Colin Davis is arguably the finest Berlioz conductor in the world; both of his recordings of Les Troyens are magnificent and elsewhere he's rarely bettered. His winning streak continues with this live performance with the LSO of Harold in Italy and the ballet music from Troyens. Tabea Zimmermann's solo viola is as grand, brilliantly flavorful, and picturesque as the LSO's playing; and the entire performance swift and rhythmically propulsive is simply fantastic.

For a change, the late 1960s yielded up a supergroup that lived up to its hype and then some. Ginger Baker's Air Force was recorded live at Royal Albert Hall in January of 1970 - in fact, this may be the best-sounding live album ever to come out of that notoriously difficult venue - at a show that must have been a wonder to watch, as the ten-piece band blazed away in sheets of sound, projected delicate flute parts behind multi-layered African percussion, or built their songs up Bolero-like, out of rhythms from a single instrument into huge jazz-cum-R&B crescendos. Considering that this was only their second gig, the group sounds astonishingly tight, which greatly reduces the level of self-indulgence that one would expect to find on an album where five of the seven tracks run in excess of ten minutes…

The best Jamaican musicians brought a substantial and masterful contribution to jazz. Their belated recognition reveals truly original, sophisticated styles. At long last the rare, little known albeit greatest recordings of Jamaican Jazz are gathered here, across 3CDs. They include strong personalities such as Wilton Gaynair, Cecil Lloyd, Billy Cooke, the ground-breaking Rastafarian Afro-Jazz of Count Ossie s Drum Orchestra, the distinctive guitar of Ernest Ranglin, as well as legendary names Joe Harriott, Harold McNair, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Don Drummond and Rico Rodriguez. These musicians, who were shortly to be instrumental in ushering in the Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae eras, breathe energy and life into Swing, Mento, Hard Bop and Soul-Jazz.

Nick Saloman of the Bevis Frond once again invites us to join him in the obscure pleasures of little-known pop, R&B, and jazz instrumental sides of the '60s and '70s with this collection. A number of the selections featured on Return of the Instro-Hipsters are so obscure that even Saloman isn't sure just who is responsible for them (though he offers some educated guesses on the artists behind such names as Sharks, Oliver Bone, and the Masked Phantom), but there are a good share of solid grooves and kicky melodies to be found here from a number of gifted little-knowns. If you went to the movies in the '70s, "Soul Thing" by Tony Newman will sound familiar, while flautist Harold McNair solos over a Dave Brubeck-influenced piano groove on "The Hipster," Jerry Allen demonstrates new uses for game calls on "Fuzzy Duck," Thunder Road's synthesized version of "Peter Gunn" beats Art of Noise's variation on the theme by more than 15 years, "The Brooke Bond Beat" by Cliff Adams may be the most swingin' tea commercial ever, and the Outer Limits serve up some tough, moody rock, appropriately titled "Black Boots".

Gas Chromatography (GC) is undoubtedly the most widely used technique for the separation and analysis of volatile compounds. Yet comprehensive guides to contemporary GC theory and practice are surprisingly hard to find. Basic Gas Chromatography fills this significant void in the GC literature. Written by two well-known practitioners and educators in GC, it offers thorough coverage of the basic principles and techniques of modern gas chromatography.

The Best Band in the Land is the third and final studio album of Collective Consciousness Society. It was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, January to May 1973 and released in September that year. It includes covers of songs by The Kinks and Cream amongst others, but unlike their first album it mostly features original compositions. The style continues that of their previous two albums, with heavy rock and blues songs arranged with jazz instruments.
