Reviews

 

24/05/0009 Grainne Farren, Irish Independent

"This is the young Northerner's first CD, made in the USA last November. Effortless mastery of his instrument, a lyrical approach and a singing tone all combine to make it an impressive debut.
Sam Yahel on piano is an unassuming accompanist and a relaxed soloist. Bass and drums provide just the right kind of sensitive backing. The highlight is You Don't Know What Love Is, given a mellow treatment by guitar, bass and drums on their own."

 

01/05/0009 Ray Comiskey, Irish Times

"On this evidence, Belfast guitarist Mark McKnight is one of the best young musicians to emerge on the Irish jazz scene.
Blessed with a gorgeous tone and abundant technique, he makes an assured debut with a highly compatible quintet completed by Will Vinson (alto/soprano), Sam Yahel (piano), Euan Burton (bass) and Mark Ferber (drums).
Their impeccable handling of McKnight’s attractive and sustaining compositions belie the fact that this is a pickup group. Vinson and Yahel, striking soloists with the presence to impose their authority on anything, respond impressively to the guitarist’s originals, while McKnight is clearly energised by them and the work of a rhythm section in which Ferber is particularly sympathetic. The gifted guitarist is not yet a markedly individual player, but he’s already an exceptional talent and one to watch."***

 

19/04/0009 Cormac Larkin, Irish Tribune

"Since leaving school, young Belfast guitarist Mark McKnight has spent much of his time in the US studying and playing. This, his first recording under his own name, was made there with a quintet of leading musicians from the New York scene, including Will Vinson on saxophones and the superb Sam Yahel on keyboards.
But even in such exalted company, the stand-out musician is McKnight, who plays with fluidity and conviction and whose excellent original compositions give the band plenty to get stuck into. An auspicious debut from a musician capable of assuming the Irish jazz guitar mantle which, given the standard set by his predecessors, is saying something." ****
