‘7 Pieces of Silver’, led by acclaimed bass player and arranger Paul Baxter, continue their celebration of the late, great hard-bop pioneer Horace Silver into 2017, with more enthusiasm and passion, more arrangements and even more viscerally tantalising shows.
“Baxter’s freshly-hued arrangements are, in the best sense of ‘new light through old windows’, a joy to hear – and it’s great to feel the immediacy and enthusiasm in these contemporary performances, including some rather tasty nuances.” - AP Reviews, 2016
