Reviews

 

07/07/2005 Stuart Nicholson - OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY

"Jazz supergroup whose passion proves inspirational. The contagious rhythmic energy of ‘Kirsten Sunday Morning’ makes you want to do heroic deeds like climb Everest or swim the Atlantic.... Not a dull moment from beginning to end."

 

07/04/2005 John Fordham - THE GUARDIAN

"Richards' arrangements are terrific, and the choice of material is just as good... A landmark achievement in a long career."

 

01/04/2005 Chris Parker - JAZZ AT RONNIE SCOTTS

"Immediately accessible, wide-ranging album... as infectiously enjoyable as it is carefully constructed and programmed... blues and post-bop jazz, tinged with funk, African and Latin influences... powerful, earthy, dramatic music... a judiciously balanced band in top form."

 

01/04/2005 Tom Barlow - JAZZWISE

Big ballsy nine-piece...mixing up giddy, rambunctious big-band style modern jazz with funk and Monk-inspired bop... Great Spirit seem to embody that brand of raw British big-group jazz pioneered back in the day by The Jazz Warriors. Worth checking, and don't miss them live."

 

01/01/2005 Martin Longley - JAZZ REVIEW

"A spectacular assemblage of hot favourites on the UK scene. Richards fills his charts with solo opportunities, shaping and framing each players' spell in the spotlight... [the] expressive fire rarely lets up. 'Epistrophy' receives an elaborate big band arrangement, with Tony Kofi getting rugged and Jason Yarde smearing and stretching on alto."
