Borne of tragedy and by the sounds of what is available so far clearly turned into something of an artistic triumph over adversity this from Chicago drummer-composer Jeremy Cunningham who wrote the documentary styled The Weather Up There in a response to the violent death of his brother 12 years ago.

Jeff Parker and Paul Bryan have produced and both play on the 'It's Nothing' track. The alto sax player here, what an inspirationally tender lead he gives, is Josh Johnson.

Northern Spy are putting the album out on 28 February.
