Description :S.O.S. were one of the great but under-documented ensembles in 70s British jazz, consisting of three genuine superstars of the 'Brit-jazz scene': MIKE OSBORNE, ALAN SKIDMORE and JOHN SURMAN, the group formed in April 1973, and lasted until the end of 1976.

Although all three men were saxophonists and the band is commonly thought of as a 'saxophone trio', they were much more than that, as this period found John Surman experimenting with synthesizers, sequencers and keyboards, while Alan Skidmore was a very able drummer; anyone expecting three saxes at once at all times will be very surprised when they hear the heavy synthesizer parts mixed with driving drums and blowing sax lines; trad jazz this is not!

The group toured widely and had a large body of work to draw from, but only released one, self-titled album on the Ogun label during their lifetime. Cuneiform's release of Looking For The Next One, a 2-CD compilation of rare and previously unissued studio sessions and live recordings, will not only rekindle discussions about SOS's innovative music among connoisseurs, but introduce their exciting, virtuosic music to a new generation of listeners. The inclusion of the entirety of their legendary July 1974 Balver Höhle Jazz Festival concert is a game-changer, as it reveals SOS's penchant for connecting multiple compositions with open improvisations, an approach they did not employ on the Ogun album. The concert also documents how Surman seamlessly integrated keyboards and synthesizer into a performance, and gives more space to Skidmore's energetic drumming than on the album.
