  Eric Okafo & Jerry Crozier Cole we know, and you'll be musically salivating already. Plus Barney Sage on drums & Jack Baldus on keys and vocoder, which last might be a clue (as well as the band-name) that we'll be heading into '70s jazz-tinged future funkland. Smooth but stiletto-sharp.

  Guys in disguise concealing but showing off, one-time long-time Bell faves who haven't been seen here for a while. Hence the disguise. Confused? Well it's so the bassplayer won't be. It'll all make sense eventually. If you like highspeed internationalist folkery as much as I do you'll be at this one and enjoying the close-up.
