Rob Lavers - Small Creature
Review Jazz Wise April 2008 ***
Robert Shore

Lavers' second album as a leader is a showcase for his impressive talents both as multi-instrumentalist and as a composer.
The former young jazz musician of the year, runner up went to art school and appropriately enough his writing has a certain painterly quality, with the leaders soloing adding fine impressionistic detail to expansive self-penned landscape-style sketches like the opener, 'The Snolly Guster'. But above all small creature demonstrates Lavers' versatility from the churning swing of 'Mask' to the emotive, tumbling tumult of 'Missing the World' or the cocktail-bar bop of 'Skoochin for Skach'.

The more he and his band members stretch their sound palette, the more they engage: 'Song for Baudelaire' features a propulsive, stuttering opening riff from the rhythm section that contrasts effectively with Lavers' sinuously smooth-flowing sax part, while the martial snap of Laurent Robin's snare and Jamil Sheriff's hypnotic driving piano part, repeat the trick on the closer, 'Nimes'.
