"It has been my good luck to play music with Bob Barnard since meeting him many years ago. The sound of the combo is intimate and conversational. Like four blokes sitting around playing cards!
Bob and I place our bets and show our hands. Nigel Date on acoustic rhythm guitar deals a deck of grooves and Jonathan Zwartz adds his superb double bass playing to the conversation, trumping everything when he solos.
All the music was recorded in one afternoon with no edits or overdubs. Let the cards fall where they may." Ian Date October 2016
