Recorded 2000 with all original material in a jazz quartet format.
(35.12) Chris Flegg (g); Martin Simons (ts, ss, t, h); John Rees-Jones (b); Rod Brown (d, pc). London, March 6, 2000 (Mellow Tone Records MTC FF 001)
This is a pleasant recording of original compositions lead by a gifted songwriter and guitarist, Chris Flegg. He is ably assisted by three equally talented musicians, of whom Martin Simons's unique ability on all four of his instruments gives the CD plenty of scope and variety. Bassist Rees-Jones and drummer Brown are both tasteful and tasty and give ideal support. Even though Flegg's Django inspired guitar may seem at the light end of the jazz spectrum, he has nevertheless produced a worthwhile recording which I find very easy on the ear.
