|Loose Tubes: Arriving
The latest album by the winners of the Jazz Fm 2015 Live Experience Award features the first original material in 25 years!
The original lifespan of Loose Tubes, from 1984 until 1990, was incredibly short, given the band's impact and influence. The album includes the third and final release from its valedictory residency at Ronnie Scott's in 1990, and new material from last year's triumphant return, signifying just why that impact was so profound. Played with passion, flair, finesse and - simultaneously - a beguiling informality, the sweep of the music is enormous. Despite passing references to many a genre, many another innovator, many a musical tradition around the world, it was the entire cocktail that made the band such an irresistible force, as in the infectious vamp of the record's title track.
