Led by bassist and composer Michael Janisch and playing music from his 2009 solo album “Purpose Built” plus inventive arrangements of standards.

"A quite inspired set peppered with incandescent solos and commendably tight ensemble work."
JAZZ MANN FEATURES
It's good to see a “cutting edge” festival returning to Birmingham again, especially one that is so supportive of young, up and coming musicians.
Guest contributor Trevor Bannister on a "a fascinating day spent at a church near Shepperton, where producer Andy Cleyndert was recording Scott Willcox's ten-piece big band for his Trio label".
