Jez Nelson presents a concert by the Samuel Blaser Quartet. Swiss born Blaser has developed his own vocal like phraseology on the trombone and describes his music as exploring the fertile ground between hard bop and free jazz. New York Downtown guitarist Marc Ducret joins him, adding a fusion element to the sound. The band is completed by a transatlantic rhythm section of bassist Banz Oester and drummer Gerald Cleaver.
