Players line up boasts some of their generations finest British Musicians: Steve White, Mick Talbot, Damon Minchella & Aziz Ibrahim. On its original release in 2003, Mojo magazine described this instrumental album as "Nothing less than extraordinary". Recorded live by producer, Max Heyes (Primal Scream, Weller, OCS,Doves), the Players album is a consummate lesson in the art of the rhythm section. Joined by special guests Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) & Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene), with the tightness and funk of the MG’s and the syncopation of the Meters providing the inspiration, the ambition of the tunes delivered has been driven purely by the desire to showcase a higher musical purpose to a new generation of young musicians. This album is a journey into dynamics, groove and improvisation by four musicians at the top of their game………………Players.
