''City Sunday with pavements bare'' - words from the Westbrooks' 'Wasteground and Weeds' a song that appeared on Allsorts (2019) in a moving version arranged for piano and voice.

Inspired by Sunday walks around Poplar, Bunhill Fields, St Paul's the song, a meditation you could interpret on London past and present through metaphors of destruction and neglect, is newly arranged on upcoming Westbrook themed album Music Is that has this solo baritone saxophone treatment as an extra for the download version delivered by long time Westbrook saxophonist Chris Biscoe here with one of two versions of the stirring Ellington calibre ballad on the album.

Tracks on the 25 November release on the Trio label also find Biscoe in combination with bassist Dave Whitford, GoGo Penguin drummer Jon Scott, guitarist Mike Outram and pianist Kate Williams. Enter the Harry Carney zone. Chris Biscoe, top. Photo: chrisbiscoe.co.uk
