Alistair Dobson appears as a featured solist and ensemble member on this recording, The Fountains of Witley Court, written by Australian jazz legend Ian Pearce. The piece was originaly a commissioned work by David Bayley, who was involved in the reconstruction the Perseus and Andromeda Fountain in the gardens of Witley Court in Worcestershire. In 1995 David commissioned Ian to write a jazz piece with "the music imitating the style of the water itself as it makes magnificent height and many a beautiful pattern as the many jets flow." It was not until 2012 that the piece was actualy performed and recorded for the first time, just a few short weeks before Ian's sad death. The other ensemble members were Paul Martin, Antony Morgan, Paul Furniss and Mike Colrain.
