Drawing inspiration from medieval dance tunes, contemporary jazz rhythms and Celtic folk melodies, four outstanding individuals who are leaders in their fields together create a dazzling synthesis of musical colours, which makes for exhilarating yet demanding listening. Respectable Groove's original style and unique instrumentation create a distinctive repertoire that allows them to move with effortless ease from classical masters like Borodin and Couperin to contemporary giants like Lyle Mays and Kathryn Tickell via 14th century estampies.

 

Reviews

 

01/01/2000 Karen Griffith

"My toddlers are dancing to it!"

 

01/01/1999 Patrick Johns 'Jazz Record Requests’ BBC Radio 3

"A dazzling fusion of old and new musics, played with understanding and virtuosity, and further stretching the musical boundaries of jazz."

 

01/01/1999 Alyn Shipton ‘Jazzmatazz’ BBC World Service BBC Radio 3

“This new album goes to prove that using instruments associated with the musical past is no barrier to producing interesting contemporary jazz.”

 

01/01/1999 John L.Walters ‘The Guardian’

“ … recorder virtuoso Evelyn Nallen … can play fast, improvised jazz with admirable control of timbre and intonation … pushes the supposed technical and timbral limitations of the instrument to spine-tingling extremes … she can swing, and she can play a simple tune sweetly, with little embellishment ... the recording exploits the delicacy of the sounds they use, particularly Tatsuhara's inventive cymbal-work.”

 

01/01/1999 Mark Argent ‘Early Music News’

"Wonderful concert, brimming with musicianship and excitement, bringing together the best of the worlds of baroque music and jazz."
