All aboard the Night Bus for Second Trip with Gary Brunton, Bojan Z and Simon Goubert. BLACKPOOL GIRL, first single from SECOND TRIP, a new audio and video release for this composition.
« I wrote Blackpool Girl in 2000 when my daughter Jade was born. Jade had a very pale complexion and this reminded me of the town Blackpool and the local girls you might encounter walking down the promenade besides «Blackpool Tower» (which is miniature (1/3 size) of the Eiffel Tower. Blackpool is a populer seaside resort in the North West of England, one hour’s drive from my hometown of Burnley. The sun doesn’t shine too often in Blackpool. This seemed to be an ideal tune for the trio. The mood moves from rubato to a rock groove then a jazz waltz, each member of Night Bus is featured with equal solo space. » – Gary Brunton
