BunnDeBrettQuintet, owes much to London Transport's 94 Night Bus. Percussionist & Drummer, Stephen Bunn (Bunny) and guitarist and piano player Jon DeBrett first collaborated as the founding members of 90s Acid Jazz band Mother Earth. With further collaborations as remixers, producers whilst signed to Mercury Records the pair called it quits on the music industry sometime around the turn of the millennium. In 2019 they bumped into each other at the world famous 100 Club in London's Oxford Street at a gig featuring a new line-up of Mother Earth with Matt Deighton from the original line-up. The BDQ album literally came from the conversations that Stephen and Jon had that night. Indeed it was on the 94 Bus back to Shepherds Bush (West London) that Bunny formulated the idea that he and Jon DeBrett should make music again. Within a few days they were back in the studio and here is the result. With spoken word vocals from Oakland's poet extraordinaire Tenesha the Wordsmith (Peacocks and Other Wild Animals) and a line-up (see full list below) that includes Tamar Osborn (Collocutor), Matt Deighton (Mother Earth) Saxophonist Alan Barnes, vibes player Roger Beaujolais and Bassist and songwriter Neil Corcoran, this album will be considered a modern classic that bridges the Jazz scenes of the 90's to London's innovative, contemporary scene of the present.
The BunnDeBrettQuintet album is double vinyl release on 180 gramme, deep groove, heavy final fully mastered by Frank at the Carvery.
