Who said the supergroup was dead? Tonight's offering includes musicians more familiar with headlining their own groups: Frank Griffith hails from Oregon and then New York. As a composer and arranger he has worked with Jon Hendricks, Lionel Hampton and Ron Carter. Probably best known on the London scene for his excellent Nonet, formed in 1997. Ace trumpeter Dick Pearce had a lengthy association with Ronnie Scott which lasted from the 1970s until Scott's health forced him to abandon performing in the mid-1990s. “If John Etheridge weren’t so brilliant he might be more famous. His versatility is confusing. What other guitarist could have begun his career as a member of Soft Machine and the Stephan Grappelli Quintet?” - Dave Gelly, Observer. “One of the best guitarists in the world” - Pat Metheny.
