Elton Dean Quintet – Welcomet – Live in Brazil, 1986

Elton Dean Quintet – Welcomet – Live in Brazil, 1986

At the behest of Elton Dean’s widow, Ogun was (in 2017) delighted to release this live recording of the Elton Dean Quintet from their Brazilian tour of 1986. The first track, the epic 43 minute “Welcomet” had originally been put out on LP by Impetus but was long deleted. The CD reissue included a second track “Rio Rules” which comes in at a mere just-shy-of 34 minutes.

Elton Dean – saxello, alto saxophone
Harry Beckett – trumpet, flugelhorn
Liam Genockey – drums
Marcio Mattos – bass
Paul Rutherford – trombone
