Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever UK CD release of a newly re-mastered edition of the 1970 self-titled jazz-rock album by Atlantic Bridge.

Born of a time when jazz musicians crossed in to the world of rock music, Atlantic Bridge was a quartet featuring Mike McNaught (piano, electric piano), Daryl Runswick (bass, bass guitar), Jim Philip (flute, soprano sax, tenor sax) & Mike Travis (drums). All four musicians were seasoned players on the London jazz circuit, but sought to expand their musical horizons.

Influenced by the experimentation of Miles Davis on his album Bitches Brew and by the work of British musicians such as Keith Tippett, Atlantic Bridge, led by visionary Mike McNaught, took compositions by such artists as The Beatles and Jim Webb and crafted a highly innovative album which also revealed the talents of Daryl Runswick (a respected bass player later to play with Elton John and The Alan Parsons Project among others), Jim Philip and Mike Travis.

Originally released on Pye Records’ “Progressive” imprint Dawn Records, Atlantic Bridge now commands large sums from vinyl collectors. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Dawn master tapes and features two bonus tracks taken from a rare Maxi Single (also released in 1970).

The release features an illustrated booklet and an essay featuring exclusive interviews with Daryl Runswick and Jim Philip.
