Corey Mwamba presents music that ignites joy and happiness. Featuring trumpeter Dave Holsworth’s rollicking interplay with his group New Brew and a playfully inquisitive saxophone duo from Dee Byrne on alto and Cath Roberts on baritone.
Plus, a luminous sound collage bringing together snippets of pop music samples and layered electronics with the inimitable voices of saxophonist Lol Coxhill and bassoonist Lindsey Cooper, best known for her work with Henry Cow. The recording is from 1999 and comes from the archive of Scatter, a gig series in Glasgow and also features the keyboardist and sound maker Pat Thomas and Bill Wells on electric bass.
Produced by Rebecca Gaskell.
