Following the death of their friend and fanzine editor Margery Styles, the Westbrooks were surprised to be told she had left a bequest for them to make an album.

This is the result – a sextet celebration of Margery and her husband John, who died in 1989. There are songs about her favourite colour, yellow; about the Styles' love of jazz, drink and conviviality; and about Margery's visit to see the grave of the father she never met. It's tender, beautifully played and reflects the radiant goodness of its dedicatee.
