Ghostly White Christmas, Sussex, UK at dusk on 19th November 2021 – by Phil Smith

I had met Ozzy and his double bass earlier on that day to play some music in the park. There was some kind of tree surgery going on on an industrial scale – saws, shredders, the drone of an apocalyptic wood chipper that shook the ducks on the pond and rendered conversation impossible… In short: not the time for quiet festive tunes. By no means disheartened, Ozzy went to yoga and I had a stir fry. Later on that day, in a different park at the end of another road, dark having fallen by now, we met again and found here the right space to offer up our gentle notes.”
