Watch The Fred Baker Trio perform at Fred’s local pub The Neptune from 2019. With Mickey O’Brien on Bass and Nick Twyman on drums.
“Recorded on the eve of the band studio sessions for “Cutting Both Ways“, these are live-in-the-studio performances of the music Phil had recently written with the aid of a bursary from the Arts Council, specially recorded for the BBC’s Jazz Today programme…“

Thanks to Joerg Reinicke for this very special recording of Roy Babbington and Laurie Allan playing together with Delivery in March 1971 at the BBC for Allan Black’s ‘Sound of the Seventies’.
