"As a student at Guildhall I often trekked down to the 606 club to see as much live jazz as I could get my ears on. A regular performer at the club, Bobby Wellins became a firm favourite due to his expressive sound and fiery playing. I then discovered Stan Tracey's Under Milk Wood Suite through a project some other students were doing, and though their performance was enjoyable, when I listened to the original album I was transported - that haunting tone, at once fragile and profound, the rapport between the four musicians, and the continuous unfolding of melody was a listening experience in another realm. The track Starless and Bible Black remains one of my biggest influences, a constant reminder from one of the seminal British jazz combos of the power of true improvisation and the spirit of jazz." - Josephine Davies

Deep Tide Quartet + West Hill Blast Quartet
 
Deep Tide: Martin Archer (saxes, live electronics) Kim Macari (trumpet) Laura Cole (piano) Walt Shaw (percussion, live electronics)
They describe their approach as "open ended jazz playing with no stylistic limits - written scores, graphic scores, improvisation - improvisation which is inclusive of melody and structure - whatever we feel like playing - plenty of space for the music to develop its direction - concentrated and careful listening - ultimately rooted in, and building on the tradition of, pure jazz skill no matter where the music takes us."
