Simon Fell’s new suite, ‘Double Standards’, specially written for the 2018 New Stream, is made up of new and experimental arrangements of selected jazz standards, challenged by a series of contrafacts and counterfeits, old and new. Simon made Trad dangerous for us in 2014 with his piece The Ragging of Time, now he gives us a Great American Fake Book for our current slippy and mendacious era. The quartet are Rachel Musson (soprano & tenor saxes, flute), Robert Jarvis (trombone), Simon Fell (double bass) and Mark Sanders (drums, percussion).
