This album is available to pre-order. Orders will be sent out in time for the release date of 1st July 2016. Payment will be taken at the time of the order.

Letís Get Deluxe, the third album on Basho Records from transatlantic contemporary jazz supergroup The Impossible Gentlemen, captures a substantial but organic evolution in the groupís sound. Co-leaders Mike Walker and Gwilym Simcock consciously moved to broaden the instrumental palette at the earliest stages of the writing process, using melodies and counter melodies to create an intricate narrative.

By the time the group came to recording, the music had already been thoroughly road-tested on tour, with Gwilym Simcock making increasing use of keyboards in addition to the piano. On the finished album, Simcock demonstrates his virtuosity as a multi-instrumentalist,contributing parts on tuned percussion, French horn and flugel horn. This is not the only change, however. Saxophonist and clarinetist Iain Dixon steps in, further to augment and enhance the arrangements. Given his wide-ranging expertise across the woodwind spectrum, and his long-standing working relationship with Mike Walker, Iain was the obvious choice to fulfil this role.

Gwilym Simcock, Mike Walker, Steve Rodby, Adam Nussbaum - Tribute to John Taylor



 

Reviews

 

01/07/2016 Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast

the last note you hear on the album is one of those notes that confirms what you have been thinking for a while Ė that you are going to press play again immediately. Yep, this third disc from the Impossgents is one of those endless repeating pleasures.

 

30/06/2016 John Fordham, The Guardian 4 stars****

A big ascent for a band that was already at pretty high altitude.

 

29/06/2016 John Bungey, MOJO, 4 stars ****

'This is jazz that stretches the ears but never forgets its mission to entertain.'

 

23/06/2016 Marlbank 5 stars *****

Daring, imaginative stuff, then. Simply a thrill. A lightning strike of an album

30/06/0016 Cormac Larkin, Irish Times, 4 stars ****

'...the addition here of versatile saxophonist Iain Dixon lends their third release an earthiness and unpredictability often lacking in the highly polished world of jazz-rock.'

 

15/06/0016 Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise, 4 stars ****

'...hits you right between the eyes with its mix of seductively sing-a-long melodies, classy arrangements and tastefully succinct improvisation.'
