"I can see the likes of Gilles Peterson really digging this gem of a boss breaks type song. Further into the track Liddard lets rip with the imperious tones of his sax, bristling with energy and verve. This fresh sounding new project is essential listening , luxuriate in its Magical tones!”

Emrys Baird Blues & Soul Magazine

The Argonauts met at Covent Garden Opera House while they were performing in Carlos Acosta's Cubania. They grew into a multinational collective of master musicians & singers. Fusing classic jazz funk sensibilities with twists of Cuban, Brazilian & Jamaican traditions and modern electronica. Having enjoyed shows in Europe and reviews of the debut single; "Together Forever is a veritable jazz version of Romeo and Juliet, this band is essential listening" (Emrys Baird, Blues and Soul magazine), they're now concentrating on the debut album and live shows.

Aaron Liddard, Amy Winehouse's former sax player and his band released their new track, 'Together Forever' which has been described by Blues & Soul review as 'a latin tinged lilt that breaks out into a jarring yet jazzy street groove for anybody who likes a bit goosenecking... A veritable Jazz version of Romeo and Juliet with a simple message - love an make that eternal!'
