  • Track of the day: ‘The Comedian’

A very impressive feat of overdubbing here and more than all round saxophone playing, and that’s not even mentioning the bass playing, beautifully arranged into the bargain.

It is remarkable that there are only two people on Stuff I Heard: Troy Roberts, plus the, to be fair, completely overshadowed presence of drummer Jimmy MacBride.

Roberts is the coming man in the Brecker-Potter lineage for sure and this track alone proves it in terms of chops and artistry. My admiration for the Australian grows with every record. SG

Out on Toy Robot Music.
