will be exploring afresh the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standard material recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind.

The quartet will be in the studio in late October for its first recording, joined on some tracks by Colin Oxley.

with cellist Ben Davis. Three generations of musicians from three London jazz collectives - Chaos, Way Out West and
F-IRE collectives - play music crossing the jazz spectrum created by everyone in the band.  Comparative newcomers Elliot Galvin, Tom McCredie and Corrie Dick are swiftly gaining recognition as some of the most creative musicians on the British and European scene.
