Iain Matthews of Fairport Convention, Southern Comfort, and Plainsong fame, returns after a long absence, with a stunning collection of new songs and beautiful arrangements performed with some of Holland's finest jazz players. On paper the pairing of Iain Matthews and Egbert Derix is a strange pairing. Egbert Derix is an established jazz composer from the Netherlands and Iain Matthew's roots have taken hold in contemporary singer/songwriter circles. However, if we break down these borders, look deeper, and think in terms of quality, rather than genres, it's a musical marriage made in heaven. Their second collaborative album focuses around some remarkable new songs. Matthews draws deep upon his recollections of London in the swinging '60s -- "When the Floyd Were on the Prowl" and some powerful reflections upon life now -- "Pebbles in the Road" and "Joy Mining."
