Description

This album was conceived as a series of street moods, hence the titles, short, to the point, and reminiscent of typical street slang. Listening to "Bad Blues," you have to imagine the large metropolis in the early hours with neon lights glimmering off wet pavements and the night people going about their business. "Sax Rap" features Barabara's original talking saxophone, instead of the more usual rappers "mouth licks". "Breathless" a cool romance amidst the Chaos of the City. "You must Be Jokin'" is a piece based an a typically English phrase, and dedicated to Ronnie Scott, his incredibly funny jokes and his internationally famous Jazz Club in the heart of London's Soho. Where you would probably sit sipping that Jong cool drink while tapping your toes to "Jaunty". "Cheeky" mirrors the bright costumes and festive atmosphere of any big City's Carnival week. "Squiffy" reflects the feeling of being high on anything that turns you on.."Gracey" is both graceful and folky, yearning for the beauty and peace so hard to find in the concrete jungle...


Barbara Thompson: tenor & alto & soprano saxophones, alto flute / Jon Hiseman: peral drums, paiste cymbals / Peter Lemer: keyboards / Malcolm Macfarlane: acoustic & electric guitars / Phil Mulford: bass guitars / Hossam Ramzy: percussion / Noel Langley: trumpet / Ashley Slater: trombone / Frank Holder: congas, bogos
