Fiona's Comments

Hits those high notes Hitchcock, one of the UK's best sax players-- must be the Aberdeen air. Lively tune on a fine album from Mike McEvoy, no shade on the trombone either.

About the Album

A cheeky uptempo funky fusion featuring the phenomenal Nigel Hitchcock on alto sax, the track has some tricky rhythmic skips and time signature changes and relentless groove. Taken from the album 'The Long Way Home' (released 10 March 2014) this track is getting good radio play on JazzFM, UK.


Drums: Dave Hamblett; Bass: Calum Gourlay; Alto Sax: Nigel Hitchcock; Trumpet & Flugelhorn: Gerard Presencer; Trombone: Mark Nightingale; Piano: Mike McEvoy.
