About this item

'Spanish Raga' opens the EP, inspired by an evening out after a gig in Madrid in 2019. Always unpredictable, the tune moves from delicate flute melodies to punchy synth bass and drum grooves, with a Raga inspired flute interlude in the middle. 'Fall From Grace' is a melancholic jazz folk song. Inspired by the current uncertainty we all face. It winds through a complex horn line driven by explosive drums. The EP title track 'Gideon's Way' carries on the cinematic "cop music" theme from the bands 2019 LP 'Ironside', taking inspiration from ITV's sixties cop classic 'Gideon's Way'. Latin-jazz roller 'The Good Mixer' closes out the EP in energetic fashion, with a nod to Dingwalls and other closed Camden watering holes. A free-wheeling, playful tune with combined flute and trumpet solos nodding to the Charles Mingus approach of ensemble playing, elevated by Carnegie's drum grooves. 'Gideon's Way' leaves the door ajar for the fifth Ruby Rushton album, scheduled for release later this year.
