Recorded in East Kilbride Arts Centre, this is the fifth chapter in the celebrated saxophonist Lol Coxhills adventures with Burt and MacDonald. This new recording features the hugely successful pianist Bill Wells along with the presiding genius of The One Ensemble - Daniel Padden, a stalwart of the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra. Lol plays his bent soprano on this session (like a tiny alto) and features the first ever recorded duet between bandleaders George Burt and Raymond MacDonald.

  2. Thank you. This is one of their recordings I had not heard. FMR released several including Tsunami and Popcorn which feature Coxhill. All are very, very good.

  3. Oh yes - a wee stoater (as they might say in East Kilbride). Thank you.
