The Geat Divide again straddles the middle ground between modern composed and free jazz. The band includes Paul's tenor sax, Keith Tippett-piano, Simon Pickard-tenor sax, Paul Rutherford & Hilary Jeffries-trombone, Gethin Liddington-trumpet, Paul Rogers-bass & Tony Levin-drums. The band progresses through a six-part program that explores a multitude of moods and styles within the medium of modern improvised jazz. On the final track, an additional 8 players, including Elton Dean, Evan Parker, John Adams & Mark Sanders join the Octet on their musical journey. This is an important addition to Dunmall's ever-growing body of works as well as to the genre affectionately called "Britjazz".
