Lend Me Your Ears features the whole of Hamburg’s NDR bigband and covers a huge variety of contemporary writing (all original compositions by Colin Towns) for a large group: from middle eastern (Storyman) through to electronics (Lend Me Your Ears) to chamber pieces (Voyage Around Vladyslav, a suite to highlight the incredible talents of pianist Vladyslav Sendecki); fun (Franks Big Boogie Machine); elegant beauty (A Kiss For Eternity); dance (Tango Teaser) and wild (Ghost Train Through The Chaos Theory). Always with melodic twists and hooks and never alienating.
