Already established on the jazz scene in the UK and Italy with a string of regular appearances culminating with a packed audience at Glastonbury Festival where they played the Jazz Lounge.

”From moment to moment (Downes') evocations leap from hairy rock-tinged John Scofield (Killer Joe), to howling Hendrix (Straight No Chaser) to rhapsodic- acoustic Ralph Towner (View in Blue). ”His alert comping enables Pearce's trumpet to really stretch out over Coe and Bruce's beats. Jack Massarik: Jazzwise

Sounding both relaxed and contemporary simultaneously. PD3 are well versed in the art of collective improvisation and seamlessly interwoven lines. Derek Ansell: Jazz Journal International
