Conceptualist, producer, engineer, and composer Ben Lamdin's final entry for the year is the sophomore studio collaboration with the Nostalgia 77 & the Monster - his live jazz band. This set follows in the footsteps of the unit's excellent 2012 offering, the Taxidermist. While there are some personnel changes here, it's worth noting that the Monster is a slimmed down version of the Nostalgia '77 Octet, which ceased performing after original drummer Graham Fox died. All of these players - bassist/arranger Riaan Vosloo, pianist Kit Downes, reed and wind player James Allsopp, trumpeter Fulvio Sigurta, and drummer Tim Giles - have long been part of Lamdin's collaborative stable.
