Jonathan Coe hoped for a career in music before becoming a celebrated novelist, playing keyboards in various bands before What a Carve Up! established his career as a writer in 1994. The Rotters' Club, a winner of the Wodehouse Prize in 2001, got its name from the title of an album by Hatfield and the North, giving a clue to his interest in the progressive rock and jazz-rock fusion music of the 1970s. He has collaborated with the High Llamas, Theo Travis and Louis Philippe, and now with Italy's brilliant Artchipel Orchestra, whose previous projects have involved tackling the music of Soft Machine and Phil Miller. Artchipel's members arranged and performed several of Coe's compositions at a festival in Milan in 2021, with the writer as a guest musician. The five pieces engage the senses in a twisty-turny Canterbury School kind of way, full of neat bits of melodic and rhythmic
invention, adroitly fleshed out by the arrangers (including Ferdinando Faraò, Artchipel's founder and leader).

'On this live album, recorded with an excellent Italian big band, Coe plays elegant keyboards on five of his own compositions. The good news is that his melodic, prog-tinged songs sound cool and sophisticated when adapted into jazz-rock by the bandleader Ferdinando Faraò.' ★★★★
John Bungey - The Times, November 2022
'The music is wonderful! What a band. Incredible arrangements.'
