With Steve on this album are three of Australia's finest musicians - Andrew Gander (drums), Matt McMahon (keys) and Matt Keegan (sax).

With this line up, good music is expected. But occasionally the planets are in alignment and a particular gig captures an ineffable greatness. One night the gods were smiling and such a gig was recorded at 505 in Sydney, Australia.

The band hadn't set out with the intention of recording a live album. It was only when Steve listened to the tape that he knew something magical had been captured. This will be Steve's first ever live album.

The idea of the gig was to choose a selection of Steve's compositions that Andy, Matt & Matt knew well and that each had a strong identity unto itself. The band would then improvise, disassemble, reassemble and generally play upon them.

“Area 51” is dedicated to five great musicians that all left us early – at the age of 51: pianists Bill Evans and Roger Frampton, drummer Tony Williams and saxophonists Dave Ades and Bob Berg.
