London Borough of Camden, London N6
with Martin Speake (alto sax), Mike Outram (gtr), Jeff Williams (dms)
Professor of jazz and contemporary music at the Royal Academy, Martin Speake, has recorded a bewildering variety of albums from Middle Eastern music to one devoted to themes associated with Charlie Parker. Outram is one of the most in demand musicians around and Williams is an American drummer, a subtle swinger, blessed with razor sharp imagination, and no need for bombast. One of the most creative trios you are likely to hear anywhere.
