Out of print since 2011, John Cameron's soundtrack to Kes is pastoral British jazz film music at its very best.
Kes by Ken Loach is one of the greatest British films of all time and has one of the finest soundtracks of the period. Put together by the incredibly talented John Cameron this score beautifully sums up the freedom, innocence and tragedy put across in the film. With a crack British jazz line up including flute legend Harold McNair, Ronnie Ross (Bass Clarinet), Tony Carr (Drums), Danny Moss (Clarinet) and David Snell (Harp) this score not only appeals to the soundtrack collectors but also followers of the classic British jazz sound.
The score is only 19 minutes long and therefore fits perfectly onto a one-sided LP.
