And Finally Big Band

"This project was spawned from a conversation that I had with Tim Harper, show producer for And Finally Phil Collins. I played him the album by Phil’s Big Band called A Hot Night In Paris and happened to say … “wouldn’t it be amazing if we could re create this?” The next thing I know we’ve sorted out some big band charts and I’m tasked with fixing all the musicians needed to make it happen, Tim sets about sorting some dates in well chosen theatres and organizing the stage set and the sound etc. My good friend Jon Peacock agrees to be Musical Director and we’re off. Right from the first rehearsal I knew we had created something really special, so much so that Phil himself heard a copy of our live CD and sent us a message." - Tom Lark
