Arranging an impromptu session with drummer John Stevens (a founding father of British free improvisation) and his group, Spontaneous Music Ensemble, Bradford appeared on two classic volumes for the Nessa label, both originally released in 1971. The two complementary sets are reissued here under the slightly confusing title (given the name of the Stevens-led group) SPONTANEOUS MUSIC ENSEMBLE. Bradford here is in excellent company and sounds more forceful than on his typically reserved contributions for clarinetist John Carter. Dynamic playing from Stevens, along with saxophonist Trevor Watts,.
John William Stevens (10 June 1940 in Brentford, Middlesex, England – 13 September 1994 in Ealing, London) was an English drummer and a founding member of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble. Stevens was born in Brentford, the son of a tap dancer. He listened to jazz as a child but was more interested in drawing and painting, through which he expressed himself throughout his life. He studied at the Ealing Art College and then started work in a design studio but left at 19 to join the Royal Air Force
