    Performed Sun 9th October, Burton Institute, Winster, Derbyshire
    Eight musicians from the JET Collective spent a weekend developing the new suite of music inspired by Derbyshire Landscapes, customs and ideas, (originally begun at the first JETWorks weekend on June 25/26th), and then performing it on the Sunday evening - who knew what would happen?

    Jet Collective is a recently formed group of professional Derbyshire jazz musicians who have come together to collaborate and explore musical opportunities outside our usual bands.

    The musicians are Steve Salfield and Sara Littlefield on saxophones, Reg Clegg on guitar and bass, voice and production, Pat Sprakes on guitar and double bass, Paul Biggins on piano, bass and guitar, Wendy Kirkland on piano and vocals, Karen Clegg on vocals, keyboard, melodica and flute, Clive Loveday on drums.

    'White peak, dark peak' splits the Collective into two bands, the white peak bright band and the more sinister dark peak sections, reflecting Derbyshire's dual personality. The piece then segues into 'The Devil's Elbow' which is based on a legend of a man opposing his daughter's marriage - he would rather she wed the Devil. But the Devil's arm turned to stone so he ripped it out and threw it on the moor, to form a bend in the road. It is said that you can still see a strange black form gliding across the moorland near the road, which is known as 'The Devil's Elbow.'
