The sparkling debut album from one of Britain's most in-demand pianists. Great tunes masterfully interpreted with verve, originality and humour. The tight-knit ensemble, with Jeremy Brown on Bass and Matt Skelton on drums, integrate seamlessly throughout this highly-approachable mainstream jazz album.
