Scottish drummer/composer Tom Bancroft’s new venture was born of a week holed up in a Scottish village with English jazz piano star Tom Cawley and Norwegian double-bassist Per Zanussi, resulting in a CD that has been universally praised.
“…riveting set… complex, twisting, percussion-powered episodes are played like a rougher, brawling Brad Mehldau band. Cawley is inspired…. Zanussi’s majestic..It’s a shot-in-the-dark venture that turned into a world-class trio in a week.” John Fordham, The Guardian
