A band of band leaders making some great music and having fun.

Shortwave were originally formed for the 1991 Le Mans Jazz Festival and because they all had such a time a French tour was organized in 1992, which is where these recordings come from, Perpignan and Lille, Oct '92 to be precise. This album was first released on the Gimini label in France in 1993 and has not been available for quite some time - nice to see it back in it's new cover.
