The music is all Andrea Vicari original compositions based on varied styles and grooves from Flamenco to South African rhythms; whilst showcasing the extraordinary improvisational skills of virtuosos Mornington Lockett (sax) and Elvis Stanic (guitar) – as well as her own piano playing described by JazzUK magazine as ” a constant delight – intense, probing, and generating a seemingly endless succession of ideas”
