'Tune Up Turn On Stretch Out' was recorded live at the Vortex during the London Jazz Festival in November 2006. Cartwright and her long time collaborator Alison Rayner on bass play with new drummer Buster Birch.
This imaginative and freewheeling trio are joined by jazz poet and vocalist Sarah P.
“ Cartwright is as adept at the funky shuffle somewhat reminiscent of Grant Green as harder-edged, multi-textured playing, and her compositions draw on everything from 1970s fusion to grunge music and the straightahead jazz of the likes of George Benson and Wes Montgomery, but it is the unpretentious zestfulness of her approach, her clear enjoyment of the sheer variety of sounds her guitar can be made to produce, that is so infectious and which makes her playing so listenable.” Chris Parker, reviewing for the Vortex


 

Reviews

 

17/05/2008 Stewart Lee The Sunday Times

‘Her sinewy guitar fronts a sparse trio - with beatnik spoken-word injections from Sarah P - who stretch out like a psychedelic 1960s blues band, but take the blind leaps of faith of improvisers. Highlights are the Nirvana grunge-fusion Smells Like Jazz and a sublime exploration of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights.’

 

13/04/2008 Dave Gelly The Observer

‘If there is a more complete guitarist in contemporary music than Deirdre Cartwright I'd like to know who it is.’
