01 Mr Silver     This is the latest in the collaboration between Miles Music and the Peter King Quartet. This CD shows Peter King’s range as a composer and musician of undeniable standing. Accompanied by the legendary Gordon Beck on piano, and regular sidemen Stephen Keogh (drums) and Jeremy Brown (bass) the jazz quartet is given another dimension by the superb musicianship of the Lyric String Quartet led by Patricia Calnan. The Janus suite was recorded live at the Purcell Rooms in 1997. Alan Barnes sums it up well
“This then is Peter King, master saxophonist, inspired composer, and a true polymath and Renaissance man. And this recording is surely his masterpiece.”
