Woolly Mammoth

by Dave Manington



Recorded remotely in lockdown, this track was written for a group of like-minded London jazz musicians brought together by Rick Simpson to rehearse and workshop each others new music for medium/large jazz ensemble. With the sessions out of action during lockdown, I decided to ask everyone to track their parts at home and put this recording together myself. Everyone did a fantastic job creating the vibe and contributing to a very organic sounding finished track which features great solos from Tommy Andrews on Alto and Billy Marrows on Guitar.
