John Clare reviews the first outing of brand new material from Andy Fiddes for Scott Tinkler and jazz orchestra,
judging from enthusiastic conversations I overheard, this was kingly playing.
It was also very impressive writing by Fiddes. Each piece had either strong emotion or enthralling atmosphere and texture, or all of that. A special night with the special feelings and resonances one can still experience in a connoisseur’s jazz club.
