Featuring the internationally lauded reedsman, Paul Dunmall and Jeff Beck’s keyboardist Tony Hymas in addition to the Paroksha duo of Anderson and Gibbs, 21st Century V-Bop is a tour de force of spontaneous composition, caught live in the studio with no overdubs, just the pure creativity of four finely tuned musicians.
“Gone” is the group’s return, after many years, to the studio and they have enthusiastically embraced all the opportunities this offered. All the pieces were recorded ‘live’ in the studio and subsequently mixed and remixed by Marco Anderson, creating something that is the essence of the group but also something completely new.

“Tunes without moons and Junes…with an edge that stuck in the air …Zappa-tight riffs that mutate somewhere sideways of bebop”
Mick Green, review of the group’s live ‘Hotel for the Birds’ gig. Quarter Notes ‘04.
The Paroksha power trio team up with saxophone giant Paul Dunmall and celebrated US keyboardist John Serry to produce a landmark jazz recording, live-in-the-studio with no overdubs. “Powerfully emotive playing by a quintet at the very cutting edge of modern music”. YoYo UK
