Nuovo aspetto e nuovo indirizzo per il sito web dedicato a Ian Carr, curato da Roger Farbey fin dal 2002: http://iancarrsnucleus.webs.com. Tra le notizie più recenti, quella dell'imminente pubblicazione in vinile di un inedito del Michael Garrick Sextet, Prelude to Heart is a Lotus (Gearbox Records).

Prelude to Heart is a Lotus is a 1968 BBC Jazz in Britain recording now released for the first time. Pianist and composer Michael Garrick was 35 years old and together with close associates - saxophonist Don Rendell and trumpeter Ian Carr - was defining innovative new directions in British jazz. Prelude to Heart is a Lotus is the precursor to the Argo Records Heart is a Lotus studio album which was released two years later, and this remarkable music shines a new light on an extraordinary period of creativity in Garrick’s long career.
