In the run up to their second anniversary gig at the Manchester Jazz Festival in July 2010, and to celebrate both the end of their first set of UK tour dates and the reissue of the Beats & Pieces EP after the initial limited edition run of 100 had sold out, Efpi invited three friends of the band to remix a song from the EP with very exciting results!

UPDATE November 2011 - to coincide with the deletion of the Beats & Pieces EP containing the original versions of these remixes, we've updated the collection with a brand new remix of yafw (part iii) by our very own Nick Walters.

This remix collection has been made available to download with no minimum price. If you enjoy the music please pay what you feel the music is worth! All contributions go directly towards supporting the band - as you can imagine running a 14 piece big band isn't cheap, and we are always grateful for your support!


released 28 July 2010

"A glorious, full-bloodied set demonstrating all that’s good about big band jazz. The big band tradition is alive and well and living in Manchester"
