Bass player and composer Gavin Barras leads a sterling group with Ed Jones on tenor saxophone, Steve Plews piano, Corey Mwamba vibes and Dave Walsh drums. A wonderfully varied programme includes tributes to musicians like Billy Harper and (Booker) Ervin, some attractive ballads and the title track, inspired by the 2011 riots in Manchester.
