The Impossible Gentlemen, consisting of bassist Steve Swallow, pianist Gwilym Simcock, guitarist Mike Walker and drummer Adam Nussbaum, have released their debut, self-titled album.
With members from the UK and US, the quartet came together last year for a tour that inspired them to record their their improvisatory chemistry.
The compositions on the album are lush environments with great grooves mixed in. Swallow, who was one of the early adopters of electric bass in jazz, holds down the bottom like only he can while the band ebbs and flows with their emotions.
