Exploring the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standards recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind, this new band evokes the spirit of these classic recordings while giving free rein to the personalities of the musicians.
The evening will feature arrangements from the original Desmond/Mulligan recordings including 'Stardust', 'Stand Still', 'All The Things You Are' and 'The Way You Look Tonight' and new standards-based compositions by Chris Biscoe.
"….perfect rapport, and a positively uncanny grasp of this elusive idiom….. The playing is immaculate……It all sounds bright, sharp and, well, modern." Dave Gelly, The Observer
