The Great Wee Band/Stan Sulzmann

Critics' choice
Great Scottish soul jazz guitarist Jim Mullen chose this apt moniker for his band, featuring as it does excellent Brit jazz trumpeter Henry Lowther, bass legend Dave Green and drummer Stu Butterfield, all combining on a refined mix of modern, modal and funky material. Incisive Wayne Shorter-ish sax man Sulzmann adds yet more class to this group as a special guest.
