Skelton's project celebrates in particular the 5 volumes of legendary drummer Shelly Mannes’ “Live at the Blackhawk” sessions, recorded in San Francisco in 1959. Leading from the drums, Shelly's stellar quintet originally featured saxophonist Richie Kamuca, trumpeter Joe Gordon, Victor Feldman at the piano and Monty Budwig on bass. Often touring, recording and appearing on televised concerts, this group helped to ensure that the West Coast jazz scene retained a strong post-bop identity strongly linked to the East Coast quintets of yore led by Parker and Gillespie in Shelly's hometown of New York. A truly original musician and drummer, Shelly Manne's mastery of his craft are immediately recognisable. In bringing together this new group, the objective is to share the legacy of these remarkable live recordings with fresh energy; each of the players here are chosen not for the purpose of emulation but to express their own identities as informed by the original recordings. Matt Skelton has long been known as one of the foremost drummers on the UK jazz scene, having accompanied many leading internationally known figures such as Harry ''Sweets'' Edison, Conte Candoli, Bucky and John Pizzarelli, Warren Vache and Scott Hamilton amongst others. Most recently he has appeared with Steve Grossman, vocal legend John Hendricks and with Grammy award winning singers Curtis Stigers and Kurt Elling as part of Guy Barker's large scale commission for the BBC proms.
