In 1995 producer-trombonist Big Bill Bissonnette recorded clarinetist Norman Field, pianist Richard Simmons and bassist Terry Knight for a CD on his Jazz Crusade label. The group was dubbed the "Red Light Trio" because of the light that was on Knight's amplifier! Their music was very much in the tradition of 1920's New Orleans with Field in particular sounding strong. There was no attempt to keep the band together after the recording session was over but, since all three musicians play in the trad circuit in England, it is possible that they will regroup in some form in the future.
