Reviews

 

09/01/2009 Martin Longley

A startlingly good debut album.... The bandleader’s tunes possess a veering midnight highway danger, with elements of influence from Charles Mingus, in terms of their slurry, blues-infused language.

 

01/02/2008 Malcolm Lewis – Planet Magazine

Gareth Roberts’ writing, and the band’s playing are tremendous fun. Play most of this album loud and torture yourself by trying not to move a muscle. It’s impossible! Your eyelid will start twitching, your leg will kick – and you’re away

 

12/08/2006 Ian Mann - www.thejazzmann.com (****)

This is a very impressive debut recording. Roberts’ writing is imaginative and intelligent but he never takes himself too seriously. As a result there is hardly a dull moment on the album and the band’s real sense of enjoyment communicates itself to the listener. Even the cover makes you laugh

 

01/07/2006 Massimo Ricci - touchingextremes.org

When one listens to a new release three times in about ten hours - which I did here - it usually means we're in presence of something truly special. I can only be thankful that young players like these ones still exist, people capable of writing music that's at one and the same time respectful of the tradition, accessible and gifted with virtuosity, music that will have you feeling much better after you've finished listening to it
