The recording is full, warm and rounded.
It might be to do with the stellar pedigree of its players; its lean economy of arrangement;its muscular swagger; the slight suggestion that Petts and Northover are sneering at those who take this music business just that little bit too seriously. It’s fun, infectious and catchy, with a sense of craft that makes it a pleasure to listen to.
