The best English electric jazz album for the past 30 years.
It's fusion but not as we know it, from the epic Brazilian influenced opener 'A Real Embrace' to the anthemic album closer 'Dad Logic', this album takes you on a musical mystery tour that will leave you exhilarated and breathless and ready to instantly listen again and again.....

The album features Iain Dixon on saxes and woodwind, Mikey Wilson on drums, Sylvan Richardson jr on bass and John Ellis on keys, musicians with which Mike has a long association and understanding. Add in percussion, strings, French horn, piano, brass section and vocals and you have the most assured and impressive debut album by a British musician in a long time.

Mike says about it:

"This album is the first under my name. It's about dissonance masked by consonance, and having clear statements despite the density. I wanted the harmony to be supported by the melody. I wanted the rhythm and bar lengths to feel completely natural, even though they're not. I wanted it to be singable, and street-walk whistleable. I didn't want the face to reflect the inner workings."
