Pianist Stan Tracey and saxophonist Bobby Wellins are reunited in Bobby's hometown in a quartet with two of the leading lights of a subsequent generation of British jazz musicians, bassist Arnie Somogyi and drummer Clark Tracey.

It will also reflect how far they have come since their music — and Under Milk Wood in particular - made its first profound mark on jazz history. (Kenny Mathieson) I . p . .
