Reviews

 

29/03/2010 The List

Gough-Cooper’s intelligently crafted music is way too intense to be a credible future pop, nice though that notion is, but open-minded rock/pop/funk/dance fans may well connect with what is going on here.

 

28/03/2010 altSounds.com

Ever since she started out, Gough-Cooper has been hailed as the new jazz sensation and given this album, that’s not a surprise…. Drawing inspiration from Frank Zappa and Bjork as much as from Wayne Shorter and Michael Brecker, Gough-Cooper didn’t take the easy way, but it pays out on her band’s album debut…. Gough-Cooper does give jazz an edge of excitement again.

 

06/03/2010 Tony Catanzaro, DJ and Presenter, Diverse 102.8 FM

This is amongst the best modern jazz I have heard…. I will be playing it on my Monday night programme on Diverse FM, and be recommending it to others.

 

01/02/2010 Jazzwise, issue 138

A Scottish band made up of former Berklee students and young award winning Scottish jazz musicians is fronted by a saxophonist-composer barely out of her teens. This makes the level of musicianship on this CD all the more astonishing…. Gough-Cooper’s lyrical alto sax seems also to have absorbed M-Base-type odd metered cryptic patterns and some of the impressive drummer’s bustling grooves certainly demonstrate a line through to drum and bass and hip hop.

 

15/03/2009 George Garzone

This group is hot! As soon as I heard them I wanted in on it. Check them out: they are fierce!
