My Mother Myself

Both poets write about the extraordinary happenings of everyday life but each has a distinctive tone and style. Olive's work draws inspiration from nature and people and their lives and has a lyrical simplicity. Jehane's work reflects a darker vision, and bears the concerns of the post war generation.

Vladivostok to Moscow

An original composition recorded by JMT, it evokes images and memories inspired by a seven-day train journey on the Trans Siberian railway across the length of Siberia. Drawing on the sound-worlds of contemporary gypsy jazz, Russian folk and classical music, this is harmonious jazz with integrated speech and song rhythms adding structure and form to a dream-like narrative.

Running time 37.16

The London Series CD

The London Series is a collection of jazz-poems inspired by a life lived in the capital. The poems are juxtaposed by sections of prose, underscored by double bass and piano.
A hybrid of words and jazz about love and London from a personal perspective, the piece was recorded at The Lodge Studios in 2009. The first in The London Series, this elliptical narrative pays homage to different parts of North London as well some of the writers who once lived there.
Part memory, part fiction, this is an energetic composition with a blues feel.

Running time: 20.6; also Frank Sinatra (3.47) and The Rainy Season (3.49)
