Fiona's Comments

Unusual meter - not odd. Affecting, thoughtful and balletic. Album has an international jazz quality, worthy at any festival.

About the Album

A sprightly melody in a cleverly disguised odd-meter displays influences from classical music and inventive soloing from each member of the trio.


Matt Ridley: double bass; John Turville: piano; George Hart: drums; Other tracks with: Jason Yarde: saxophones; Attab Haddad: oud; Vasilis Sirikis: percussion.
