About the album
Following their triumph in the Best Ensemble category at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards, Anglo-American supergroup The Impossible Gentlemen will release their second album ‘Internationally Recognised Aliens’ on Basho Records on 2nd September 2013. Produced by multiple Grammy winner Steve Rodby, the album further refines their mastery of melody and groove, whilst offering plenty of thrilling surprises.
The group features internationally acclaimed British piano sensation Gwilym Simcock, Salford guitarist and UK treasure Mike Walker and American bass and drums superstars Steve Rodby, Steve Swallow and Adam Nussbaum. The result is nothing less than remarkable with five unique talents, all superb players in their own right, coming together to create something new and powerful.
The Impossible Gentlemen will play Brecon Jazz Festival in August and then tour the UK in October in support of the album, culminating in four nights at London’s Pizza Express Jazz Club.

The second album by the scintillating supergroup which blends the egghead groove guitar of Mike Walker with Gwilym Simcock’s refined and resourceful piano plus a dynamic rhythm team of Steve Swallow (bass) and Adam Nussbaum (drums). The symbiosis produces an ensemble of ever-evolving creativity, which also manages to stop to smell the roses and have a bit of a laugh.
