Our latest album:



Every year Slim writes a song or two in celebration of Penny's birthday. Here we present eight of those songs plus a couple of recent instrumentals.

We live in a world full of incredible, wonderful music and as is typical of our projects, this album is stylistically diverse, with musical influences including Brazilian, Country, Swing, Jazz and whatever else we've somehow managed to pick up along the way.

While all of these tunes have been posted here before (as they were recorded), they've now all been tweaked, re-mixed, and mastered for the new CD. The player below contains all of the latest remixed and mastered versions of these tunes for your listening pleasure, free of charge.
“Every song sounds like it was a true moment of inspiration captured beautifully on the first take.”

- PT Gazell (Master of swing on the half-valved diatonic harmonica, Creator of the Gazell Method)
