There is an impressive amount of variety on this swing-based set despite the small size of the group. Clarinetist Tim Laughlin, vocalist/rhythm guitarist Rebecca Kilgore, pianist Tom Roberts, bassist Marty Eggers and drummer Hal Smith all understand prebop jazz quite well. Many of the songs are taken from the swing era (including "Piano Man," "Drum Boogie," "What a Little Moonlight Can Do," "Sing, Sing, Sing, and "Cow Cow Boogie") but in most cases the quintet brings something fresh to the well-known tunes.
Cats In Space’s debut album ‘Too Many Gods’ was released in 2015 and rightly won the band many rave reviews. Since then they have toured supporting Thunder, done a joint headline tour with Space Elevator, appeared at Hyde Park supporting Phil Collins this summer and have a spot at the legendary Cropredy festival. Now they are set to unleash that difficult second album…no not for these cats as they have musical ideas and tunes many bands would love to have.
