Steve Waterman Quintet

Steve Waterman has come up with it again, following his brilliant debut album 'Destination Unknown' he has augmented his band with a sax, adding even more colour to his magical, accurate and melodic trumpet and flugel playing. All original compositions he spans the spectrum of moods and tones from the melodic, mellow flugel horn, to the crisp, tuneful and technically superb trumpet playing.
