Cartwright returns to the collaboration he first employed on Curlew's A Beautiful Western Saddle with noted lyricist Paul Haines [Tropic Appetites, Escalator Over The Hill] and vocalist Amy Denio. Curlew guitarist Davey Williams also appears.

The result is a blending of strictly composed songs sung by Denio and composed and semi-improvisational jazz-oriented instrumentals that might be comparable to the certain aspects of the ESP label sound updated. Cartwright fuses these seemingly disparate styles into an eloquently coherent musical experience.e Cartwright ) , Roaratorio and Innova .Meet the Curlews features long-time members Cartwright and guitarist Davey Williams as well as new members bassist Fred Chalenor (Hughscore), drummer Bruce Golden and pianist Chris Parker, whose contributions swing the genre-busting band more firmly into the realm of jazz.
