Dave Arch, former NYJO piano chair holder and current musical director for the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing band, with prestigious album and film credits to his name, has just released a new album featuring many of his former NYJO bandmates. The new disc features Paul Stacey on guitar, Nigel Hitchcock on saxophone, Andy Greenwood on trumpet, Steve Sidwell on flugelhorn, Mark Nightingale on trombone, Frank Ricotti on marimba, and Gareth Lockrane on the flute.
A recent review on Jazzviews.net described what we can expect from Dave’s new disc:
“In Coming Home his debut release, composer and arranger Arch presents a wide ranging and varied collection of impeccably executed pieces. Featuring around 80 of the finest studio musicians Arch could possibly have gathered, pieces range from the Eastern tinged ‘More Air’ through the almost ‘funky’ groove of ‘Roll The Dice’ to the full on rock elements of ‘Three Amigos’.”
