It is almost 30 years since the release of the Mark Simmonds Freeboppers album ‘Fire’ in 1993 on Birdland records, with Simon Barker, Scott Tinkler, and Steve Elphick.

The music on this album is just stunning and won an Aria award in 1995. Sadly Mark passed away in 2020, but our thoughts will be with him as the band plays this masterpiece in full!

PERSONNEL:

  • Matt Ottignon – tenor

  • Tom Avgenicos – trumpet

  • Jonathan Zwartz – bass

  • James Hauptmann – drums
