Mike Westbrook – Glad Day Live. ted British poet William Blake with the music composed by British pianist, composer, bandleader Mike Westbrook. Westbrook's association with the poetry of Blake goes back to the early days of his career, with the release of the legendary album "Tyger (A Celebration Of William Blake)" released in 1971, which also involved Mitchell, and which remains criminally unreleased on CD to this very day. In 1980 Westbrook released another Blake related album called "The Westbrook Blake (Bright As Fire)" and then in 1999 he released the studio version of "Glad Day" as a 2CD album. Ten of the twelve compositions included in the studio version are present on this live album.

Mike Westbrook’s Bright as Fire is an album of jazz settings of Blake’s poetry. Features Phil Minton, Kate Westbrook, Alan Wakeman, Chris Biscoe & Dave Barry. Music composed by mike, on william blake's poems. He's helped by wife kate and few musicians (alan wakeman, chris biscoe, dave barry, phil minton, etc). This is the second record dedicated to the genius that was william blake, after 1971 "Tyger".
