Tim Amann, who studied History at Cambridge, is a composer and leader himself, and has played with Art Farmer and David Murray, among others. Bassist Mike Green has performed with Jamie Cullum and is very much in demand around the midlands and beyond. Sam Rogers (sax) is an agile improviser and has worked with many influential musicians over a long period and brings a great warmth to the band.
