Then and Now with alto saxophonist Allison Neale and Chris on baritone sax is based on the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standard material recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind.

The quartet was recently in the studio for its first recording, joined on some tracks by guitarist Colin Oxley, and includes new original pieces by Chris and Allison. Then and Now will be available in November on Trio records.

The Profiles Quartet was created to explore the musical legacy of the great Eric Dolphy, a remarkable saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist who, 50 years after his untimely death, continues to influence and intrigue new generations of musicians and listeners.

For this tour of Devon and Cornwall Chris and Stu are joined by two of the south-west's finest musicians, the dynamic and creative Marcus Vergette, and composer, bandleader and saxophonist Roz Harding.

The band repertoire includes tunes from the great recordings Eric Dolphy made with Charles Mingus and Oliver Nelson, jazz standards, and Dolphy's own
compositions, which reflect his bebop roots and his growing originality.
