Fiona's Comments

Hits those high notes Hitchcock, one of the UK's best sax players-- must be the Aberdeen air. Lively tune on a fine album from Mike McEvoy, no shade on the trombone either.

About the Album

A cheeky uptempo funky fusion featuring the phenomenal Nigel Hitchcock on alto sax, the track has some tricky rhythmic skips and time signature changes and relentless groove. Taken from the album 'The Long Way Home' (released 10 March 2014) this track is getting good radio play on JazzFM, UK.


Drums: Dave Hamblett; Bass: Calum Gourlay; Alto Sax: Nigel Hitchcock; Trumpet & Flugelhorn: Gerard Presencer; Trombone: Mark Nightingale; Piano: Mike McEvoy.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
