While the slang in the title is north east of England - a stottie is a flat and round loaf - the style of the playing crosses the Atlantic and on a tune such as 'Catching the Wind' that breeze takes you to say the sound of Sonny Rollins in the hands of this efficent piano-less trio led by charismatic drummer Abbie Finn with tenorist Harry Keeble in the Sonny role throughout and a solid sounding Paul Grainger on bass keeping a firm beat on 'Where Are We Going For Lunch' and on other tracks. You certainly get a retro 1950s fix on the album - even more retro in the New Orleans sound Finn finds on 'Mardi Groove'. Tunes are by Finn.
