Described as ‘Surely one of Britain’s most exciting rhythm and blues groups’, this actually sounds like quite average pleasant small combo piano jazz. Vibes and stuff. Then ‘rock’n’roll’ comes into play. ‘Write myself a letter’ is a vocal with sax. ‘Whirlwind’ is a fun fast latin style piano number. An unusual record, but not in the way I wanted it to be (I would have preferred smokey/bluesey early rock'n'roll).
