Gerard Presencer - Platypus - The Sunday Post

I can only guess that trumpeter Gerard Presencer called his debut album Platypus because it has a wild mix of musical styles as the animal has physical characteristics. Performing with the likes of James Brown, Sting and Ray Charles since he was 12 (yes, TWELVE),here he fuses styles and sounds to create a classical cool bistro jazz sound.
