'Funkerdeen' features a totally original set of compositions and arrangements from leader Derek Nash, he is accompanied on the front line by leading UK sax players support by a steller rhythm section. Special guests include the multi-award winning saxophonist Alan Barnes and global superstar Jools Holland on piano.

Sax Appeal was formed by Derek Nash over thirty years ago and, with its unique five sax front line, has recorded six albums, travelled the world and garnered numerous awards, confirming their place in the top rank of British Jazz bands. As always, the band's repertoire on this album encompasses driving swing, groovin' funk, heartfelt blues, vibrant Latin and soulful ballads, and is the first Sax Appeal CD to feature entirely the composing and arranging pen of Derek.

The band has always featured the elite of British saxophonists and a world-class rhythm section. This album is no exception. Ronnie Scott's regular, Brandon Allen, and Simon Allen, sideman to the late Stan Tracey, both flex their muscles for the first time with the band.

Press Quotes

(4 stars) From all points of view - virtuosity, tonal variety, togetherness and sheer energy - this band is unique...some of the sharpest players on the London scene...Jules Holland raises a riot, guesting on the irresistibly cheerful Sticky Finger Boogie.

The Observer, (Dave Gelly), July 6, 2014

Sax Appeal's Funkerdeen provides a tasty mix of funky sax soul...a super duper sesh celebrating the joys of saxys to the maxys. Celebrating their 35th year above ground, Sax Appeal must be doing something right as the fruits from this most recent offering clearly prove.

LondonJazzNews, (Frank Griffith), May 5, 2014

"Funkerdeen" is a typically polished and professional Derek Nash product featuring a colourful set of compositions and arrangements superbly played by an all star band.
