Description

“Sunny was written for the jazz group Loose Tubes in 1985 and performed frequently. The rubato trumpet solo was originally intended for clarinet but as a trumpeter in the band I fancied having fun with it myself. There is also a reference to a moment in West Side Story which was on my turntable at the time.” J.E.

John Eacott is a jazz trumpeter, composer and academic. After Loose Tubes he composed many scores for TV, Film and Theatre including 'Gormenghast' and the2012 RSC 'Taming of the Shrew' while lecturing in music and sound art. Since 2008 he has focussed on 'Floodtide' making live sonification performances of tidal water.

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”

"WOW !!!!! all of you should be locked up !!!! What great stuff - the compositions/arrangements, the playing (OUTRAGEOUS !!! ), everything is simply fantastic. (actually - i couldn't have expected anything less ! ) Many, many thanks to you and all for your superb contributions. yet again, you've managed to raise the bar! (an inch or two is ok but a few yards is really unfair !!!!!!!!!! )"
