Silver Thrupnies in the Clootie Dumplin' is a Smooth Jazz track.....Images are of my home town, Paisley, from an earlier age.....And yes I can remember most of them.........It was a tradition to put silver threepence pieces in the "Clootie Dumplin'" at Christmas time. There were probably many broken teeth as a result of this practice. Fortunately I always managed to find the potential teeth crunchers before any damage was done.......

The basic composition is mine, although Brice was free to play as he felt and so we share the composition. Brice is one of my favourite musicians and his contribution to this track is almighty. I am indeed fortunate to share this piece with Brice and for this I am truly thankful.

It's always more than a pleasure collaborating with Bob, and this project was certainly no exception to that experience.

A lively fusion track to brighten the spirit. Back in the days when there were conductresses on buses in Western Scotland, you would often hear them shout 'Cum oan, git aff' This means 'Come on, get off' Especially when the bus was very busy and there simply wasn't enough room for every one on the lower deck. West of Scotland "slang" is actually Old Scots.
