Nick Walters is the trumpeter with Ruby Rushton. This five track album is more experimental than most of the Ruby Rushton material. The opening track ‘So Long Chef’ is exploratory journey and is eleven minutes of brilliance. The contemplative ‘Ahimsa’ has a peaceful aura to it. The two part ‘Gordian Knot’ builds slowly to a climax. It has a Middle Eastern feel to the piece. The album concludes with exotic ‘Dansoman Last Stop’, which is propelled by a walking bassline and features a flute solo from Ed Cawthorne (Tenderlonius). Excellent album.
