Reviews

 

01/01/1998 John Fordham The Guardian

“ (4 stars) The band mixes influences, often within the same song, with a relaxation that suggests informed familiarity with all its sources – like the genre-splicing Breathaliser, which has frenetic village-wedding folksiness passing in and out of sauntering jazz swing … the tunes are very distinctive – the postbop ones you could even imagine Michael Brecker’s band being more than happy with.”

 

01/01/1998 Ron Atkins The Guardian

“…the quintet’s new album Swerve shows they have turned the original concept around and produced a range of attractive and well-structured pieces that are hard to classify…”

 

01/01/1998 Pete Martin JazzUK

“…there’s certainly no denying the steady stream of bright musicians to bring fresh non-American elements into the music. A fine example is the second CD by Just East of Jazz…highly engaging and accomplished music…a blend of elements that really does work well, with the band drawing on a remarkably diverse array of sources.”

 

01/01/1998 Straight no Chaser

“…composing duo Shoham and Woodrow are powerful writers who continually surprise you. Jazz tilts headlong into a Klezmer melody, lyrical gets funky, and the listener is pleasured from all sides at once, particularly by the sparkling virtuosity of Jeremy’s clarinet and saxes… check ‘Dybbuk Chimes’ for that old magic of the Shtetl and ‘120mph’ for a cool Manhattan workout which ends up slamming through your picture window at 4am in the morning. The message: indies, majors – stake the superbly talented will yer?”

 

01/01/1998 Glo Simons Leeds Guide

“The most interesting music I’ve heard since listening to Uri Caine’s ‘Mahler revisited’…the most potent of musical mixes… top class musicians creating virtual music for the millennium!”

 

01/01/1998 John Etheridge Musician

“…a distinctive flavour with a recognisable identity…the album offers an enjoyable variety of music…the tunes and playing have a fresh, unpretentious quality about them…Cameron’s unexpectedly lovely vocal – I didn’t know this fine keyboard player could do this!…altogether a very attractive and expansive record carrying the standard for eclectic jazz… catch them if you possibly can.”

 

01/01/1998 LAM magazine

“The rhythm hooks you and the melodies haunt you…the smoky vocals of pianist Hilary Cameron are simply beautiful”
