Over to the inevitable press release for a bit of chat where we discover that McCoy used to play piano in a bar “in exchange for quesadillas”. Listening to a bit of ‘Boogieman’ is not at all as, yes, corny the comparison. Dismal January when it comes out, to be released when we get there by Blue Note, is not looking so bleak a prospect after all.
