Bread and Circuses, the Neil Maya Quartet's second album, includes a lot of our and our audience's favourite tunes over the last two years. It is a mix of originals by Tom and Neil as well as three standards, all with a unique NMQ take on them. The album title is a quote from a first century poet and satirist, Juvenal (panem et circenses in latin), basically saying that all the people are interested in is food and entertainment, as opposed to more in depth issues such as politics….well so be it, but perhaps we could provide the entertainment!

What I liked about Bread & Circuses was the different styles. The Caribbean flavours really shine through in 'All Change Please' whilst 'Big Girl Funk Machine' is a really danceable track. Neil Maya is a talented and technically sound musician, who is developing his sound through his quartet. Neil Maya makes saxophone sounds reminiscent to Illinois Jacquet at times, and Cannonball Adderley's influence can be heard throughout - however Neil Maya's voicing and phrasing are difficult to compare to anyone. The Neil Maya Quartet is unique - something the crowd as Ronnie Scott's would appreciate
