Reviews

 

01/05/2001 Kenny Mathieson, Jazzwise

"..... with a line-up like that, the disk is pretty much assured of success, but Saul has to take credit not only for surrounding himself with masterful players, but for providing some fine compositions for them to work their magic on. He more than holds his own as a player as well, and delivers a notably lyrical album in which the dominant mood is a lovely, reflective romanticism, with occasional excursions into a more muscular, swinging approach. Saul acknowledges the inspiration of John Taylor, while Bill Evans also comes to mind, and I assume he is the dedicatee of the poetic solo piano outing 'Free Piano (For Bill)'. An auspicious debut and well worth checking out".

 

01/09/2000 Michael Tucker Jazz JOURNAL

In such frantic, often cynical and profane times as our
own, how refreshing -and definately not how Heineken- it
is to come across a record with such a title and music to match.Wirral-based pianist Dave Saul who has made several
BBC broadcasts with Sulzmann and Wheeler, has both lyrical,
two-handed touch and plenty of harmonic taste. He offers
an hour of intelligently structured original music,
poetically engaging in the richly bodied yet limpid
maturity of its (largely) even paced meditations and
musings. Shot through with qualities of Evans-like
reflection and reverie (You, Free Piano), and delivered
with sterling playing all round, Reverence will appeal to
anyone who has enjoyed, for example, the recent trio work
of John Taylor, Palle Danielsson and Peter Erskine on ECM,
even as it comes with a touch or two more of kicking,
direct swing (For Gordon) than one has become accustomed
to hearing lately on the Munich label. Listen to the
exquisitely judged weight of Sulzmann's tenor sound and
phrasing on the two Toulouse tracks, the spiralling
piquancy of Wheeler, and the organic integration of piano,
bass and drums throughout and ask yourself how much music
today comes as near to the hushed intensity of Davis's
legendary Blue In Green recording as does the beautifully
poised, flute-led rumination that is the title track here.
Kind of blue, indeed.
