Reviews

 

07/12/2011 Ian Mann

"a very good album that takes a refreshingly original approach to Cuban music. Speyer’s compositions are consistently interesting with their disparate elements and regular twists and turns and the playing from a supremely accomplished band is superb throughout. “Crossing The Line” is a worthy addition to a diverse and intelligent body of work."

 

10/11/2011 John Fordham

This album from Cuba-devoted Hackney trumpeter Loz Speyer means what its title says, all the way from the imaginative fusions of Cuban dance forms and pungent contemporary jazz of his Time Zone sextet, to the snaps of Santiago and his Cuban family's hard-won travel documents on the artwork. Martin Hathaway's soulful alto sax sound and Speyer's trumpet phrasing (like Miles Davis in a salsa brass section) make a flexible front line, and on tracks such as the opening Conjunto and the jubilant Miracle Maricel, a restless, New York-downtown contemporary-jazz feel blends effectively with the intricate Cuban grooves... a typically shrewd fusion of the time senses of two quite different cultures.
