Three quarters of the celebrated 70’s version of the legendary group which recorded the acclaimed ‘Softs’ album in 1976, are completed by outstanding sax star Theo Travis. The band plays material from the era (compositions by Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge, Karl Jenkins) as well as many contemporary works , as featured on their recent album ‘Burden of Proof’.
“Burden of Proof is, to put it mildly, absolutely exquisite. These are four musicians who are masters of their craft, and truly at the top of their game, not only as soloists but as contributors in an actual band. They've put together here a collection of songs that basically has something for everyone; challenging jazz-fusion, adventurous prog-rock, bits of chaotic free-jazz, atmospheric instrumental popjazz, and even a little hard rock. Extraordinary!" Pete Pardo
