Urban Green

Urban Green is :
In 1984, I put together a nine-piece acoustic “Big band” called “Soldiers of the Road” which worked around London and played several festivals as well as making a CD under my name called “Innocence”  and two recordings for the BBC..

The concept of the band was a quartet( Elton Dean , Evan Parker, Marcio Mattos and myself) with five brass. Unfortunately Elton and trombonist Paul Rutherford are no longer with us. The new group is a similar small group plus five brass except the whole band is electric. The sound is huge and the band is even more adventurist than the original with a few of the same musicians and some new faces.
