Reviews

 

01/01/2000 Dave Gelly, The Observer

“This one is an absolute delight…with minimal resources they bring out all the delicacy of Strayhorn’s music, especially the harmonies, and sustain the mood of each piece beautifully in their improvisations.”

 

01/01/2000 Chris Parker, “Jazz at Ronnie Scott’s”

“On this live album the Quartet mixes some rare nuggets with more familiar fare to great effect. The uniquely wistful, subtle sophistication of Strayhorn’s music, its delicacy, grace and skilful varying of timbre and tone is faithfully reproduced in these unfussy arrangements, but power is also in evidence, courtesy of Kaldestad’s rich, unfailingly inventive tenor and Lee’s supple, propulsive guitar work.”

 

01/01/2000 Roy Booth, “Jazz Views”

“This confirms my view that Kaldestad is one of our finest tenor players…we also have the fine guitar of Phil Lee, but make no mistake this is a group effort and each member plays his part.
I hope it is not too long before we have another album from them…mention must be made of the bass playing of Dave Whitford and the drumming of Stu Butterfield who were immaculate throughout.”

 

01/01/2000 Frank Griffith, “Musician”


“…Butterfield contributes sturdy and swinging drums…the clear and understated quality of guitarist Phil Lee fits well with Strayhorn’s muse…Dave Whitford’s solid basswork is highlighted in his fine handling of melody chores on Raincheck and Kaldestad’s fluid melodicism is characteristically flawless throughout”
