"Jazz guitarist extrordinaire Carl Orr presents 'Absolute Freedom', his first new CD for five years and a major step forward for his funky jazz-rocking sound. The album includes guest appearances from legendary drummer Billy Cobham who Carl has worked with since 1996 and flavour of the month saxman Nathan Haines creator of the unique Bemsha club night, at which Carl played for over a year, but most of all it features Carl's inimitable mix of fiery guitar licks, compositional flair, spiritual commitment and absurdist wit.

Since moving to the UK from Sydney in 1995, Carl has established himself as a stalwart of the London jazz scene, playing with the likes of Ernie Watts, Randy Brecker and George Duke along the way. Now, with 'Absolute Freedom', he's ready to spread the word beyond the jazz faithful. Backed by a band that includes in-demand bassist Neville Malcolm, the extraordinary young drummer Dave de Rose and Adam Glasser on Rhodes piano and chromatic harmonica, Carl performs seven distinctive originals, plus a cover of Donald Fagen's 'Tomorrow's Girls'. His music bares the influence of his heroes: Miles Davis, John Scofield, Steely Dan and John McLaughlin, yet remains uncompromisingly original throughout". Jamie Renton, Straight No Chaser magazine, June 2004
