Press Release :
Young, avant garde musicians pay homage to their forbears and the innovators of improvised music in this six track recording of classic songs.

Once again the beautifully packaged LP is limited to 300 copies Worldwide. Each sleeve is individually printed by London based letterpress artist Stephen Kenny.

James Allsopp is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. His previous project, Freud, which also featured drummer Tim Giles, was described as “what the term cutting edge was meant for”, by the Guardian’s John Fordham.

Their new trio, The Golden Age of Steam, blurs the line between contemporary classical music, electronics and the full spectrum of jazz improvisation, from the blues all the way to the extremities of the avant garde.

As a sideman James has played in the UK and all over Europe and the USA with many musicians including The Brian Irvine Ensemble, Polar Bear, David Axelrod, Paul Dunmall, Dylan Bates, Stan Sultzmann and Graham Collier.

James & Tim are joined by Riaan Vosloo, bass player, arranger and leader of the influential band Twelves Trio and original member of Nostalgia 77. Riaan is frequently noted in the critical press for his musicianship and for his musical initiatives. Ross Stanley completes the line up. Ross is a tireless performing and recording musician. Still to promote his own group, he is a well known force in the London jazz community. Credits include the Heritage Orchestra, Steve Howe, Marlene VerPlanck & Dennis Rollins.
