Flat White Chris Hats off to DUBB. "Already There" could go on for an hour and I would still want more. Favorite track: Already There.

eamou Wonderfully technical and complex, but also easy listening. Great musicianship and a very clear sense of ensemble. Fantastic big band jazz, shame there's only two songs! Favorite track: On Sugarloaf Mountain.

With a focus on compositions about travel and exploration, ‘Voyage’ is a small but dynamic recording project of unique and innovative music. As an ensemble, we are constantly striving to rehearse and perform contemporary Jazz music, to bring audiences closer to both modern classics and new material from the younger generation of UK artists. The selection features this year’s winning entry of the Durham Distillery Composition Prize, ‘On Sugarloaf Mountain’ written by Owen Dawson, and is supplemented by two arrangements of vastly different material: Kenny Wheler’s re-thinking of the standard ‘How Deep is the Ocean’ (available for free on our Soundcloud) and Daniel Garel’s arrangement of Taylor McFerrin’s electronic groove based piece, ‘Already There’.
