Matt Wates alto sax, Steve Main tenor Sax, Martin Shaw trumpet, Leon Greening piano, Malcolm Creese bass and Matt Home drums. The band has been together now in this format for some twelve years and the combination of two saxes trumpet and rhythm section has become a classic, creating innumerable possibilities for an arranger/composer. Matt endeavours to come up with material that will be fun to play, as well as creating a strong mood that communicates itself well to an audience. 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. Taking inspiration from the past, but trying not to replicate it, the band performs music for which they have the deepest respect.
