The first reunion gig of Loose Tubes 24 years after their last gig together was The talking point of the Cheltenham 2014 weekend followed by a sellout week at Ronnie Scott's Club.
BBC Radio 3 commissioned new pieces from the band's composers Chris Batchelor, Steve Berry, Eddie Parker and Django Bates. These new commissions were recorded at Ronnie Scott's alongside a selection of old favourites. If you missed the broadcast for Jazz on 3 along with an interview by Jez Nelson you can listen again here.
Catch Loose Tubes on 8th August for a final get together at Brecon Jazz Festival.
Loose tubes....sprayed sparks straight through to a standing ovation.
...a triumph, with the multi-coloured maverick monstrosity back in force.
...as strong, and as challenging, as ever... It was a tremendous gig.
