Chris Laurence was born in London and studied at the Guildhall school of music. Since then he has maintained a dual career in both jazz and classical music. He plays regularly with John Surman, Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor and Norma Winstone. In the classical world he was principal double bass with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields until 1995, playing on many of their famous recordings ranging from the film "Amadeus" to Benjamin Britten's "Curlew River". He also spends a lot of time recording music for T.V, film and albums, most notably "Leaving Las Vegas" and "The Man who Cried" with the Kronos Quartet. As well as jazz and classical music Chris has also featured on albums with many stars including Elton John, Sting, David Gilmour and guitarist John Williams.

Frank Ricotti was voted Melody Maker’s Top Vibraphone player back in his teens, since when he has remained constantly in demand for his work on records, film scores, jingles and TV shows and is the first choice percussionist for many artists, valued for his creative input. He has worked with many of this country’s favourite jazz musicians having performed at many clubs and festivals including the Montreux Jazz Festival, and over the years has played alongside Stan Tracey, John Taylor, Mike Gibbs, Kenny Wheeler, Norma Winstone, Gordon Beck, John Surman and Stan Sulzmann,and is widely regarded as the UK’s most recorded percussionist As a versatile composer Frank’s crafted and distinctive scores have enhanced many TV dramas, and in particular his commissions in a jazz idiom have won much acclaim. He has collaborated closely with Alan Plater, writing the music for the acclaimed ‘The Beiderbecke Trilogy’ for YTV, winning a BAFTA Award for ‘Best Original Television Music’ for the ‘Beiderbecke Connection’.

Jazz guitarist John Parricelli began playing guitar professionally in 1982. He was a founder member of Loose Tubes, recording three albums with them. Since the 80s, Paricelli has worked with a number of names in  contemporary jazz, including Julian Argüelles, Iain Ballamy, Lee Konitz, Mark Lockheart, Paul Motian, Gerard Presencer, Andy Sheppard, Martin Speake, Stan Sulzmann, Kenny Wheeler, Annie Whitehead, and Tim Whitehead.  He has also appeared on soundtracks to many television programmes and numerous films. In 2011 he appeared on stage with Peter Erskine and John Paul Jones at the Royal Opera House, London in the opera Anna Nicole.

Martin France is regarded as one of Europe’s most sought after players. He has been the rhythmic backbone on more than 60 albums working with some of the world's finest musicians.  A turning point in his early career was his role within the 1980s big band, Loose Tubes, where he began long standing partnerships with many of its members. His association with Django Bates has led to many diverse projects away from the jazz environment they normally occupy with Human Chain and Delightful Precipice. He is also active as a studio musician working on TV and film soundtracks and is involved in programming and composing for many projects and artists.
