Great stuff! Good title and the answer is YES you are there. Tight, concise, with fine playing. Well engineered for the type of sound you want. If trying to find fault I'd say that the guitarist didn't quite keep up and flubbed a few bits in his solo just due to the speed. Sax sounds great and could even be a bit more harsh/raw. Good tone, edge, and excellent technical facility.

Yes, there are worthwhile genres beyond mainstream!

Thanks for the post, made my day.

Yes, to find flaws, is being very nit-picky! Very well done! I would love to have your rhythm section!

Yeah, not far at all, I used to play at The Venue (a big night club opposite Goldsmiths) with a Blues Brothers Band. Is your son studying music at Goldsmiths? Does he do any playing around the area?

Odd isn't it. I think the UK and the rest of Europe has had a better Jazz following since the 60s (from what I've read :) ) than the birthplace of the music. There are small pockets here, but seems to be few and far between.
