Happenstance brings together an unlikely blend of tastes and skills: the well-honed jazz virtuosity of Chris Biscoe finds a rougher edge here; Noel Taylor brings rapid melodic counterpoint spiced with flavours from contemporary music; Guillaume Viltard's luminously beautiful yet quirky bass adds attack & layers of evocative sound, and all is improbably stitched together with the punkish beats of Tom Greenhalgh. Happenstance are indeed a delightful accident, and one that is waiting to happen at The Café at Foyles.
