    Old Life, New Shoes' , from singer/pianist Laka D, is a collection of songs, some densely arranged theatrical pieces, some loose flowing lyrical elegies. Underpinned by the gorgeous bass of Dudley Phillips, which works well with the continuous inventiveness of drummer Simon Pearson, the songs tell stories of love, hope, road rage and the passing of time. There are thoughtful tunes such as 'The Sea' with Pete Whyman's bass clarinet in a trio with Laka's piano and voice, and the funk infused guitar of Jennifer Maidman on 'Twist Like A Ribbon'. The title track looks to the future with wry hope.
