Lucky Boys

Lucky Boys was first coined by Giovanni while the band listened to the album takes of Tim’s arrangement of John Lennon’s Imagine and Raye/Depaul’s You Don’t Know What Love Is, from a performance at St Cyprian’s in Marylebone London in January 05 (and confirmed by the pigeon which accurately targeted Tim’s jacket as the camera shutter fell on the album cover photograph).

Giovanni, recently no.2 in the Japanese Jazz charts and winner of the “Victoires Du Jazz” and best album from the Django Rheinhardt Jazz Academy in France, contributed three compositions, and Tim, described by John Fordham in the Guardian as a “consistently creative force on the London scene” another three, and other tracks include Ladies In Mercedes by Steve Swallow.

Four tracks were recorded live in performance, including two tracks from The Purcell Room on the Southbank on 8th July 05 (see below) and five in Temple Music Studios in April 05.
What Tim writes about the album:

« Listening to the final mixes, I’m struck by the debt of gratitude we owe to Chris Lewis, our brilliant engineer and essential collaborator in all HomeMade enterprises, for the talent, commitment and humanity described in his work.
We recorded this album with the uniquely gifted Italian pianist and composer Giovanni Mirabassi, after our paths crossed. There was a genuine opportunity of an exchange on many levels between Giovanni, myself, Milo and Oli, which we all enjoyed and which I hope is evident here.

Lucky Boys was inspired by Dancin’ In The Street (which we recorded on Personal Standards HMR 047). In Loose Tubes (a co-operative big band of 22 people) my old friend Dave de Fries used to say “Let’s dance together before we make decisions” - it’s enjoyable and spiritual, not planning every move, a celebration of life. Milo’s spontaneous humour fuels his intro and the trading at the end.

Des jours meilleurs has all the classic characteristics of a Mirabassi composition. Sounds deceptively simple, well constructed, shifts restlessly from one key to another, and is essentially a song with a human cry.

Imagine and You Don’t Know What Love Is was the centerpiece of the last gig of our first tour, recorded in St Cyprian’s Church, Marylebone in London. As we listened to the tracks, Giovanni said to me “Sometimes we are the lucky boys”. That’s what I was thinking.

The spirit of New Day for me is renewal, one of the best abilities all humans have.
We were unsure until midday of the 8th July whether we would be performing in the heart of London following the bombings on the London underground the day before, and it is because Giovanni said “I’m coming anyway” (from Paris) and because everyone involved, including the audience, carried on, that we captured in live performance the unique atmosphere of that day which exudes from Giovanni’s searching, questioning piece Barcarole.

Ladies in Mercedes is for my dancing daughter Maisie.

When Giovanni and I play Tenderness we both think of our children.

Tot ou Tard is Giovanni’s grooving edge with another celebration on the playout.

"Sometimes we are the lucky boys".
