“the mindset behind 'Silver Lined' reflects the legacy of the great 'Blue Note' Jazz recordings of the 1960s where musicians would come together and create new music over the course of a single day. the pieces were composed and developed ahead of the session by the two leaders then, with minimal rehearsal, recorded live on the studio floor with a line-up that was playing for the very first time as a unit (due to a very last-minute change of personnel!). however, the spontaneity and talent of those involved gives the music the spirit of invention and exploration that can occur when like minds come together and are pulling in the same direction. whilst being wholly in the Jazz tradition these compositions have a huge focus on melody and a strong leaning towards a lyrical, folk-tinged feeling and atmosphere”
