''It's the classic jazz quartet in a slightly different light. We work in an unusually organic way both live and in the studio, even in jazz terms. The tunes are mostly written at the piano and then brought to the studio where no one is given any musical guidelines, let alone any written music. We just roll and see what happens which gives the tunes a fresh feel and a sense that everyone really is meeting at the centre.''
