CD / Product Number: PKCD354

It's three years since this wonderful Frisco-style band made a recording - far too long I think! For me one of the attractions of this band is their great joie de vivre or to put it another way their great sense of enjoyment in all they do, which comes through strongly in their music. This CD was recorded live at the 2010 Keswick Jazz Festival in May 2010, so the band had the benefit of a large and enthusiastic festival audience. The line-up is slightly changed from their last CD (PKCD-324) by the inclusion of two guests, both first class musicians with a deep understanding of the band's style of jazz - Francesc Marco piano and Paul Tkachenko sousaphone. The other band members are:- Ben Cummings and Tony Davis trumpets Mike Wills clarinet and soprano sax Graham Hughes trombone Dave Moorwood banjo Andy Crisp drums Judy Eames vocals (on 4 tracks). The title track is an original composition by Dave Moorwood.
