Moving Scottish comedy by Donna Franceschild. With his life empty, save for dreams of former glory as a jazz musician, music teacher Robbie accidentally gains a jazz quartet.

At first, Robbie isn't interested in forming a quartet, because the other potential members are far from musical. However, he soon comes to realise there's more to a quartet than just music.
