Reviews

 

02/05/2005 Ian Carr (editor of the Rough Guide to Jazz, biographer of Keith Jarrett and Miles Davis).

“A lot of love has gone into the making of this striking and mysterious music, which seems to be a tribute and thank you note to all who contributed to it. The music is warm - often beatific - and the musicianship is superlative. The spirit of Joe Zawinul inhabits some pieces. This is a very beautiful album.”

 

01/08/0005 Brian Glasser (biographer of Joe Zawinul), Jazzwise Magazine

[4 Stars, out of 4].

"Despite the well-established pedigree of the personnel, this album seems out of nowhere: a carefully crafted love letter to the American jazz that flowered so gorgeously in the ‘70s, written and read by English sensibilities of the here and now.

Think various incarnations of Weather Report, think Herbie; but also think South London and Perfect Houseplants, and think the Johns Surman and Marshall.

It’s some feat to pull this off, both in terms of musicianship and self-conviction, but there’s not a dead patch on the CD.

Credit Patrick Wood, the project’s composer-arranger: he has created the simultaneous loose-tight musical situations that allow his associates to stretch out and reach new heights while keeping them grounded.

The album is so dependent on teamwork that it’s invidious to single out any contributor, but this kind of music is critically dependent on pulse and Nic France’s drumming really floats the boat.

The nine tracks come in various shapes and sizes, and the whole thing’s a fresh, passionate delight from start to finish".
