Reissue. The Barbados-born trumpeter Harry Beckett was one of the great treasures of British culture. Charlie Mingus was a fan, and his old LPs such as 'Flare Up' have become sought-after rarities. Even in his early 70s he was still on great form, creating a magnificent sonic treat in the shape of The Modern Sound Of Harry Beckett, on which he teamed up with a variety of dub-reggae and electro-jazz collaborators, confidently stirred into a steaming sonic bouillabaisse by On-U Sound producer Adrian Sherwood. Beckett and Sherwood worked together many times over the years, but this album is the sole full length from the unusual pairing, created by the simple but effective method of Beckett improvising over new and revised On-U rhythm tracks. Harry Beckett sadly passed away in the summer of 2010.
