Paul Edis (MD)
‘A brilliant young pianist.’ The Guardian, Blurring the boundaries between Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau and Claude Debussy, recently released The Still Point Of The Turning World is an achingly beautiful, impressionistic record that wells up from places Wordsworth deemed `too deep for tears.’
Jo Harrop (Vocals)
