2cd theo travis all i know an anthology
All I Know: An Anthology is a double CD compilation of tracks taken from the back catalogue of Theo Travis.  
 
Travis emerged on the British jazz scene with his debut release 2 am in 1993, when he was named 'Best Newcomer' in the Financial Times. 
 
Since his celebrated debut, Theo has played at most of the major UK jazz festivals and jazz clubs, performed at Ronnie Scott's over 70 times and appeared at international jazz festivals the world over.
 
Divided into two CDs - one comprising slower, more ethereal pieces and the other concentrating on more uptempo tracks - All I Know highlights Theo's eclectic compositions and features everything from haunting ballads to straight-ahead jazz, and progressive experiments to blues-orientated jazz-rock (incorporating classical harmonies and atmospheric soundscapes along the way). 
 
The album features tracks from all of Theo's solo albums, in addition to recordings with Soft Machine Legacy, Palle Mikkelborg, Steve Lawson and the short lived, but highly acclaimed, improv trio, Marshall Travis Wood.  
 
The album has been mastered by twice Grammy nominated engineer Andy Jackson and is presented in a deluxe digipack with a beautiful 20 page booklet featuring many previously unseen photos of Theo and his various groups. 
 
Musicians featured include John Etheridge, Hugh Hopper, John Marshall and Daevid Allen.
