"ceaselessly original and imaginative" - Schmazz website
"superbly gifted, well rehearsed free spirits" - Wakefield Jazz Club

"joyous solos...brilliant rhythm team... This is the sound of a band having fun" - Ian Mann, The Jazz Mann

This band is all about heartfelt improvisation on idiosyncratic tunes that stay with you. The players infuse driving jazz and latin rhythms or ambient swing with their various enthusiasms including folk and rock ballads, free jazz and the dancefloor. Their original material explores unusual meters and structures as vehicles for angular and passionate solos, with narrative melodies resonant enough to evoke a strong sense of place and time.
