" 'Impetus' is a rich and varied album with some superb playing from each member of the trio. Jones’ writing is consistently inventive and he has penned a series of highly colourful and memorable pieces" (Ian Mann, The Jazzman website, 2009)

"All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable album from a sensitive but vibrant band" (Chris Parker,The Vortex website, 2008)

"The great piano trio resurgence continues in soul-jazz and lyrical soft-bop from south Wales. On the marvellously catchy opener, "The Leopard", Jones' piano style recalls Ramsey Lewis for easy sparkle and lilt, and Herbie Hancock for chordal invention" (Phil Johnson, The Independent, 2009).

 

Reviews

 

01/06/2009 Peter Vacher, Jazz UK

Another pianist going the own-composition route is Welshman Dave Jones whose trio album 'Impetus' (DJT) is funky at first, bass and drums going for a dance groove on 'The Leopard', ahead of the more thoughtful 'Stimulus'. 'Welsh Rarebit' is a swinger, underlining the width of Jones's compositional range and the virtues of his incisive keyboard touch.

The great piano resurgence continues in soul-jazz and lyrical soft-bop from South Wales. On the marvellously catchy opener, "The Leopard", Jones' piano style recalls Ramsey Lewis for easy sparkle and lilt, and Herbie Hancock for chordal invention. But over the length of the album, it's his skills as a writer rather than generic acuity that impress the most, along with the excellent contributions of twins Chris (double bass) and Marc (drums) O'Connor.

 

12/12/2008 Chris Parker, The Vortex website

Pianist Dave Jones's debut album, Have you met Mr.Jones? (Parrot, 1996) covered work by such composers as Herbie Hancock, Horace Silver, Joe Henderson and Hank Mobley, plus the odd standard and one original; this unlike its predecessor an all-acoustic-trio affair and with every track written by Jones himself except 'Postscript', a reprise of the aforementioned original from HYMMJ? 'Impetus' nevertheless covers similar stylistic ground: polished, lively post-bop with attractive, airy (even hummable), tunes.

Energetically, but tastefully supported by the brothers O'Connor (bassist Chris and drummer Marc), Jones is a vigorous but elegant pianist, never flashy or glib, but none the less fluent and inventive for that; his ballads are suitably lyrical, his tone glowing and burnished, and his more up-tempo material draws suitably powerful solos from him. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable album from a sensitive but vibrant band.
