"There's a pull between craftsman and artist in Guy Barker, one of the UK's best jazz trumpeters. There's considerable new promise, too, in the sophisticated originals he has been writing, from convoluted contemporary groovers to an ambitious suite devoted to 1940s and 1950s Hollywood film noir. Soon to be recorded, this is Barker's most ambitious project to date." -
