Trumpeter Loz Speyer brought an earlier version of Inner Space Music to the Cluny around ten years ago. In the decade since that gig Loz has re-shuffled the line-up; the brilliant reedsman Chris Biscoe remains a key member of the band, but he and Loz are now joined by three outstanding members of the new, musically adventurous generation in saxophonist Rachel Musson, bassist Olie Brice (both of them already established as Tyneside favourites), and - making his first appearance for Jazz North East / Schmazz - drummer Gary Willcox.
