An intriguing new project featuring keyboard player Steve Hamilton. poet and guitarist Don Paterson. and saxophonist Tim Garland. Steve. known for his work with artists like Tommy Smith and Bill Bruford. has recently returned to Scotland on a permanent basis. while Paterson. a Dundonian by birth. also has a base in Blairgowrie.

Tim Garland (pictured) is an old collaborator of Don's in Lammas. the excellent band they co-led for several years. and has recently completed a stint as a member of Chick Corea's Origin. An impressive joint pedigree. and their music promises to bring together their diverse interests in European jazz. dance music. classical music and folk. (Kenny Mathieson)
