‘If you're going to have a band, it seems to me you've got to have some original material otherwise you end up sounding like a lot of other groups. About eighty percent of our repertoire is original, and the rest consists of ‘standards’ from the great American songbook which I have arranged for the band. In style, the sextet resembles many of the great small bands of the 50s and 60s, such as those of Horace Silver and Art Blakey. We take inspiration from the past, but we are not trying to replicate it, merely to add in a small way to the music we love and respect.’ MATT WATES
