Among the won­ders of col­lec­tive mu­sic mak­ing is the way a com­po­si­tion con­ceived by one per­son is in­ter­preted, fil­tered and trans­formed by the as­sem­bled pool of sounds, ex­pe­ri­ences, mus­cles, emo­tions, imag­i­na­tion, ex­per­tise and aes­thetic sense. It hap­pens in rock bands and orches­tras, but the process is mag­ni­fied when im­pro­vi­sa­tion is ex­ten­sively in­volved. All five mem­bers of Tiny Hearts have con­trib­uted pieces to this de­but al­bum, yet what hits home is not so much the di­ver­sity of com­po­si­tional ap­proaches as the co­he­sion of group in­ter­play in re­al­is­ing them. Aid­ing the cause is the dis­tinc­tive­ness of Ea­mon Dil­worth’s trum­pet which, un­like most jaz­zori­ented play­ers, some­times car­ries a blast of the rau­cous vi­brancy as­so­ci­ated with Balkan Gyp­sies or Span­ish bull­fight bands. Other mem­bers are sax­o­phon­ist Dave Jack­son, pi­anist Steve Barry, bassist Tom Bot­ting and drum­mer Paul Der­ri­cott.
