James Brady Fully and generously conceived, spanning emotional and musical range and depth. Freddie and the band are on top form throughout, recalling at times the sound of the late Roy Hargrove. Would be at home in any top jazz venue in the world. Favorite track: The Vow.

    Aimed at the heart, not the head, this is Freddie’s highly evocative collection of compositions written for long time collaborators and quartet members Tom Cawley (piano), Calum Gourlay (double bass) and James Maddren (drums).

    The music has global appeal with scintillating grooves, heartfelt ballads and some serious swing taking you on a musical journey inspired by many travels and tales of Freddie’s life. A collective of mature and virtuosic improvisers, each selflessly supporting the others to create a unique band dynamic.
