Trio Records is very pleased to present this cd by four of the greats on the UK jazz scene. Henry Lowther's beautiful trumpet and flugelhorn sound has graced jazz in the UK for several decades. Jim Mullen is one of the most instantly recognisable jazz musicians on the scene today with a vast array of experience behind him. Dave Green has to be probably the UK's favourite jazz musician amongst his peers. His contribution to this album explains why. Stu Butterfield has established himself on the London jazz scene as a highly inventive and sympathetic drummer. The material takes a new look at some jazz standards, as well as a piece of Handel, and of course 'The Sound of Music'.. which this cd is. A NEW CD BY THE BAND IS IN THE PIPE-LINE
