Sextet specialising in taking traditional Welsh folk tunes and arranging them in a jazz context. Two albums released to date “Alawon” (2007) and “Caniadau” (2012).
Current line up Tomos Williams (trumpet, flugelhorn), Daniel Williams (tenor sax), Dave Jones (piano), Tim Harries (bass), Mark O’Connor (drums) and Ceri Rhys Matthews (pipes,wooden flute).
"An impressive piece of work with some excellent playing from all six members of what is effectively a Welsh “supergroup”. Jazz/folk fusions don't always work but on the whole this succeeds brilliantly"
