Sunny Murray – Drums and Voice
John Edwards – Double Bass
Tony Bevan – Tenor Saxophone
The first studio recording by Sunny Murray’s long-standing European Trio, and their strongest statement yet.
"Could Sunny Murray’s left foot actually be the engine at the heart of the universe? That’s what it feels like, as his clashing hi-hat cymbals churn away relentlessly, the outward manifestation of his internal, eternal sense of abstract swing" – Daniel Spicer, Jazzwise.

Forgot how good this record was, Schizophrenic Blues while not frantic has a driving urgency... there is bright optimism in Birds of Beaty that is much needed in these darker days. Echoes of Ayler on Fire March perfectly recalls the master and adds some Noah Howard original flourishes... Rev. Gregory Wadleigh
