Mike Parlett - SOLAR RADIO (6 May 2008)
Ray Guntrip and Tina May Out Of TheBlue --- rayguntripmusic.com /* * * Tina May(v) plus various personnel including Dick Pearce (t) Gary Barnacle, Julian Siegal, Iain Ballamy (ts), Mark Nightingale (tb), Ray Guntrip (p. ky. org). Alec Dankworth (b) and Tony Bianco (d) Rec date not stated
. (2007) A well-known figure on the Kent Jazz scene, this CD from keyboard player and composer Ray Guntrip consists entirely of self-penned compositions. Following the advice of sax player Gary Barnacle, Guntrip sought a lyricist for the project and enlisted the fabulous Tina May, whose storytelling prowess is heard on nine songs. Although they offer ample opportunity for Guntrip's crack team of soloists to stretch out, tunes with his favoured feel such as album opener "Exotic Stranger', That Mambo Beat and 'Move the Mambo Way' (sung by Laura Knight) are curiously anonymous. Much more individual are the fascinatingly circuitous routes of the title track's melodic line, the tricky word play of' 'Be-Bop-I Gotta Get Away From You' and the swinging 'Is it love?' which grafts a new head on to the changes of Cole Porter's 'What is This Thing Called Love?' On another standout, 'Demons Dancing', May even adopts the unlikely guise of spoken word hipster in its riotous central section. The disc's one instrumental, the high- octane 'Simple Simon', brings the album to a triumphant close. Peter Quinn.
