Anglo-American 'supergroup' featuring internationally acclaimed British pianist Gwilym Simcock, brilliant Salford guitarist Mike Walker with American bass and drums superstars Steve Swallow and Adam Nussbaum.

The Impossible Gentleman, featuring internationally acclaimed British piano sensation Gwilym Simcock, Salford guitarist and UK treasure Mike Walker and American bass and drums superstars Steve Swallow and Adam Nussbaum, is nothing less than remarkable with four unique international headliners, coming together to create something new and powerful.

Critics and audiences alike raved about the band's mini-tour last spring. Here then is the result of that inspired meeting, a debut recording.

The Anglo-US quartet, fulfilled all its promise ? and then some. Walker's contribution to this ensemble was nothing short of sensational, through plenty of quiet but compellingly lyrical music, as well as some postbop gallops and a spectacular roaring blues. Simcock set the improv bar early on with a surging, McCoy Tyner-like solo on his own convoluted-bop theme, and Walker's fast Laugh Lines revealed his rare balance of meticulousness, spontaneity, storytelling and tonal bite as a soloist
