Label: Discus Music
Preorder: Releases March 24th 2023
Paul Dunnall’s dynamic Birmingham quintet’s release Yes Tomorrow was a Discus highlight of 2022. We enjoyed the release so much that we took the unusual step of suggesting he add Julie Tippetts and Charlotte Keeffe to the group to make a second release. Paul embraced the idea with enthusiasm, and came up with this suite for the expanded group. The result is a freewheeling set with a great “live gig” feel, which gives plenty of space for each player to shine, and which mixes some tight compositions with open ended improvisation sections. In particular it is great to hear Julie Tippetts’ voice as part of the front line for a jazz ensemble, a role she has not performed for a long time.
