Edwards is trumpeter-by-appointment to the alt-rock elite (he's worked with the likes of Siouxsie, Jerry Dammers and Madness), and best-known for his albums reinterpreting the works of Miles Davis, the Jesus and Mary Chain and the Fall.

Clichés, inspired by Alex Chilton's 1993 covers album of the same name, sees Edwards tackling a rag-bag from Dr Feelgood to Bach, and is relatively horn-free, relying instead on acoustic balladry. And, while he's an engaging and endearing presence, he probably shouldn't pack in the parping.
