Selling Water by the River

Ref: STI03

Umbrella People
'fine and strutting music'.
The 20th century ended with the heat and passion of latin and cuban musics. The zeitgiest of the 21st century is urbane coolness. Umbrella People offer shades of Miles in a post-Dan landscape, echoes of Zen and Zawinal. The groove factor is high but the playing is spare, the atmosphere taut. That founders Julian Marshall and Martin Ditcham should have produced such a gorgeous first album is unsurprising. Marshall wrote Dancing in the City, a platinum selling single with Kit Hain, whilst Ditcham co-wrote Sweetest Taboo with Sade, successful in the charts for the second time recently.
Working with trumpeter's trumpeter Dick Pearce ( Dizzy Gillespie was one of his wedding guests ), Umbrella People leave the first footprints in what will be a fascinating journey.
