Mike Cooper was a preeminent blues player on the British scene when he was approached by future members of The Rolling Stones to join their project. He declined and remained a solo artist who took folk and blues into improvisatory jazz territory. Here, producer Peter Eden (Donovan, Bill Fay) brought together English and South African jazz and folk musicians to follow Cooper’s compositions, and, as a result, Trout Steel, Cooper’s second album, is a stroke of genius. Just as Van Morrison’s 1968 album Astral Weeks broke into simple improvisations that transcended all expectations, 1970’s Trout Steel expands on that conceit, bringing in Mike Osborne for the beautifully gruff alto sax solo of “That’s How,” while Stefan Grossman guests on the droning modal blues of “Sitting Here Watching.” The 11 and a half minutes of “I’ve Got Mine” are a meditation par excellence. Traces of Bert Jansch’s raw vocal style guide the more traditional blues of “Goodtimes” and the country-western traces of the title track. “Pharoah’s March” is a blend of avant-garde jazz and slide blues in homage to Pharaoh Sanders.
