Here's my third and final upload by this much underated tenor player. It's from 1966 and was reissued in Japan some years ago. Good Stuff! Saxophonist Dick Morrissey towered among the finest and most innovative British jazz musicians of his generation when he teamed with guitarist Jim Mullen to spearhead the UK fusion movement of the 1970s. Born May 9, 1940 in Horley, England, Morrissey taught himself the clarinet at age 16, later mastering all of the saxophones and the flute. In his late teens, while apprenticing as a jeweler, he played with the Original Climax Jazz Band, followed by a stint in trumpeter Gus Galbraith's septet, where alto saxophonist Pete King introduced Morrissey to his chief inspiration, Charlie Parker.

If Dick Morrissey is known at all then its probably as the joint leader of the 1970's fusion band 'Morrissey-Mullen'. However before then he was an important player on the 1960s British jazz scene, releasing a number of excellent albums leading his own quartet. Here's his third, and IMO best, album 'Storm Warning' where he is backed by the wonderful pianist Harry South and the (in)famous drummer Phil Semen.

Tenor saxophone remained his weapon of choice for years to follow, and as he gravitated to bebop. Morrissey formed his own quartet in the spring of 1960 and cut his debut LP, It's Morrissey, Man!, the following year.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of his 1997 album, now completely re-sequenced by Morrissey and including four bonus tracks. Produced by the legendary Steve Lillywhite, Maladjusted contains some of Morrissey's most underrated and superb songs. From the opening title track, with its intimidating, swirling sonic attack, to the beautiful torch songs ['Ambitious Outsiders', 'Trouble Loves Me' and 'Wide To Receive'], this is one of his most diverse and interesting records; and features the hit singles 'Satan Rejected My Soul', a blistering return to the glam-rock of earlier and the upbeat 'Alma Matters'. Also includes the controversial 'Sorrow Will Come In The End' [withdrawn from the British album], which features Morrissey intoning, rather than singing, over a backing of manic strings and the beat of a judge's gavel - the song clearly about his bitter royalties dispute!

Not since the days of the teenaged Tubby Hayes had the UK jazz scene witnessed a young musician with so frighteningly advanced a talent as Dick Morrissey. By 1961, aged twenty, he had recorded his début album It’s Morrissey, Man! for Fontana and he soon found himself a popular draw in London’s club land. Recordings for radio broadcast ensured the band’s message reached a wider audience. Taped for the series “Jazz For Moderns", the previously unreleased sessions heard on this new album are especially valuable.

In theory, Maladjusted should have been a readjustment to standard indie rock territory for Morrissey after the prog rock detour of Southpaw Grammar, but Morrissey isn't that simple. From the opening title track, with its menacing, swirling paranoia, it's clear that Maladjusted isn't a simple return to form. That isn't to say that the album is devoid of the jangly, maudlin pop songs that are Morrissey's trademark – in fact, the lead single, "Alma Matters," is a quietly catchy tune that ranks as vintage Morrissey.

While it isn't a gutsy rock & roll record like Your Arsenal, Vauxhall and I is equally impressive. Filled with carefully constructed guitar pop gems, the album contains some of Morrissey's best material since the Smiths. Out of all of his solo albums, Vauxhall and I sounds the most like his former band, yet the textured, ringing guitar on this record is an extension of his past, not a replication of it. In fact, with songs like "Now My Heart Is Full" and "Hold on to Your Friends," Morrissey sounds more comfortable and peaceful than he ever has. And "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get," "Speedway," and "Spring-Heeled Jim" prove that he hasn't lost his vicious wit.
