Arnie Somogyi’s Ambulance : Accident and Insurgency

British bassist Arnie Somogyi teams his restlessly creative Ambulance quintet with the eloquent trumpet work of Eddie Henderson in this vibrant session, a sort of suite loosely inspired by the band’s arts residency in a small English coastal town. As the band sketches marine and village scenes, even throwing in occasional samples of field recordings, they also create an appealing modern-jazz atmosphere where spontaneity reigns supreme, filling their music with unexpected twists and bold leaps, heartfelt affection and a palpable sense of humor.
