There's so much to say about this CD that I couldn't fit it in to 1,000 words, nor 2,000. Having seen these performers live at London Jazz Festival, I wondered whether the CD would do justice to it. However, the Reggae arrangements of some of these well known tracks can be appreciated in depth with the CD, for example, "Footprints" (being my favourite track) was in compound time on Wayne Shorter's original, this has been put in to 4 to suit the Reggae style. It is in this track that Andy Sheppard, a legend in his own right (as are many of the performers) creates the intensely colourful sound of the soprano sax that only he can seemingly do. The arrangements are done by various members of the band, the expert hand of former 'Jazz Warriors' trumpeter Kevin Robinson being the main arranger. My one quibble, mainly because I am a nit-picker by nature, is that when listening to the whole CD through, the off-beat Reggae style employed becomes slightly wearing. That having been said, the whole point of the CD is that it uses a Reggae influenced style, fused with various types of Jazz. What makes the CD work as a whole for me though, is the solos. To have so many big names in British Jazz on one CD seems like a dream to most. Even that dreadful Pop song "My Boy Lollipop" has an audacious solo, and there are numerous places where Kevin Robinson and Guy Barker do their "How to sound like Lee Morgan" act (that's not a bad thing). Add to this a fully functional and able support group (Crosby and Wilson are both able Jazz performers) and you have what may go down as one of the best British Jazz releases of the decade.
