about

This release comes directly from Matthew Bourne's private archive and is unavailable elsewhere.

"Put together specifically for the Perrier Jazz Awards in 2001, I intended the fifteen-minute time restriction of this event to show the maximum that I could cram in.
My obsession with the work of John Zorn (the opening figure of his piano piece Carny is quoted at the start of the performance) and an ongoing love of the passionate playing of the late, great British Saxophonist Mike Osborne were core influences – adding Anthony Newley and Lesley Bricusse’s Pure imagination from Mel Stuart’s film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as the final piece in the construction. I bought the film and transcribed the song but I became so transfixed by Gene Wilder’s portrayal of Wonka and other snippets of dialogue that I thought why not sample some of this dialogue, put the samples onto a minidisc, insert some blank tracks and use it whilst playing the tune? It seemed to make sense somehow…"
