Both musicians are known for their passionate and exciting style of playing, sharing a chemistry and intuition that pushes the music in new directions, whilst always retaining a great sense of melody and swing. The quartet is completed by experienced double-bass player Arnie Somogyi and the fresh talent of Lloyd Haines on drums.
