clarifications/errata: The drummer on that Kevin Ayers recording was Tony Carr. The keyboard player in Khan (who unearthed those tapes) was Val Stevens. The trombonist featured in the Ellington piece was Quentin "Butter" Jackson. A third drummer, Bryan Spring, played on that Tippett Group album, but it's impossible to find out who actually drummed on the featured track. The 30 minute snare solo Miriam saw Charles Hayward play was in fact a 30 minute snare drum roll! All the music on the Spindle Ensemble album was indeed composed by Daniel Inzani. Anthony and I got confused about the múm discography: "We Have a Map of the Piano" wasn't an album, but a track on their second one. We were both thinking of their debut Yesterday Was Dramatic – Today Is OK.
