An album project which has 11 tracks of sheer beauty and perfection that throws up images of almost religious stature whilst letting you know that this is jazz pure and simple,I hear echoes and harmonies of Claire Fischer but it's far more organic in it's structure.
Stand out tracks for me well that is a hard one but "Black March", "Through The Looking Glass" and 'Breughel" which has a almost sixties feel to it.
The whole album would have sat very comfortably as a sound track to a french film noir .
Congratulations to Pete Churchill (Leader Of The London Vocal Project) and Dave Stapleton (Executive Producer)
