In this episode of Jazz South Spotlight, Kevin Le Gendre speaks to Fourth Page drummer Paul May. They discuss the band's entirely improvised approach to making music, what it was like making new music during these unprecedented times, the musical chemistry and language that has developed in the band over the years and much more. Plus, we get a preview of Fourth Page's new piece, The Signs Were High, commissioned by Jazz South and written during lockdown in 2020.
