This is the next natural step from the successful quintet formed in the 1990's, like the quintet it features original compositions and arrangements by its members.
The sextet line up allows for an additional reed player which means it is possible to expand on the tonal possibilities, giving a small outfit a big band feel covering a wide range of jazz styles from 'Swing' to 'Jazz Funk' featuring individual soloists.
Incorporating: Buddy's Review!
Buddy's Review is a self contained tribute to the late Buddy Rich and features arrangements by the sextets pianist Dan Banks. Titles include: 'West Side Story', 'Love For Sale', 'Norwegian Wood' to name a few. Also featured are one of Graeme's Buddy Rich Drum Kits which include a Radio King reissue and the 1970 Slingerland.
