I'd kept the name in the back of my mind after last week's visit to the trusty old Mediatheque. Today, browsing in a family aimless way, it was as if my hand were guided to this CD.
Everything connects - dates at the Vortex club in London (find memories) & Billy Jenkins' Babel label snapped them up. It all makes sense.
& everything gels in the tracks - the sax playing, the bass & drums (plenty of air) & - touch of genius - steel drums which acquire an extraordinary 'modernist' resonance.
(Oh, & great try by George North. Proves what happens when he abandons the wing & cuts inside. Devastating.)
