In his Kilburn laboratory, Professor Atzmon ponders the mightiest problem of his long and brilliant career: How to revive the dwindling British jazz audience? For a while, even his illustrious brain is troubled. As so often in his work on decimals, he struggles to find the point. He has tried a geometric solution but has always come at it from the wrong angle. The heat in the room is becoming oppressive...  Then suddenly he has it: a group of five, indivisible prime musicians on whom he can count never to be square. Calling in his old colleague Professor Barnes, he now has the power of two who, like Pi, are irrational and can go on and on towards infinity, plus a rhythm section which to describe as “average”, he reflects, would be mean.  His attention undivided, his mind flies at a tangent and his ideas multiply. Fearing the first sine of madness, he resolves to calm down, declaring that the British jazz public can therefore only be revived by The Lowest Common Denominator. Just two questions remain: what numbers to play? And will they be just a racket?
