For all you jazz fans out there below there are a couple of links to give you a taster of some of the material which will end up (in some form or another) on the new Riprap
CD which we should have out in the next few months. The recording session was on the 2nd and 3rd January 2012 and I've also posted below a few photos from the session.
As Kev tells us Old Year "is a very rough un-mixed version (mainly just off the central ambient mike - that you can see in the photo on the right) of a twisted children's song that got out of hand on the session... comments or threats are welcomed. Excellent solo from Dave halfway through."
Old year - late Miles-like version
The second, Helicon, again as Kev tells us "is another rough un-mixed track destined for the new Cd, inspired by a Seamus Heaney poem."
And here's a link to the current Riprap - website
