The Gareth Lockrane Septet - No Messin'! Debut Album 2009

The Gareth Lockrane Septet was formed in 2005 and in addition to Gareth on flute,alto&bass flutes, the band features some of the finest jazz musicians in the country - Robbie Robson (trumpet/flugelhorn), Steve Kaldestad (tenor sax), Trevor Mires (trombone/euphonium), Robin Aspland (piano), Matt Miles (double bass) and Matt Home (drums).
The band was conceived when Gareth suddenly had a lot of time on his hands in autumn 2004 due to a wrist injury that put him out of playing action for 3 months, so he left the flute in the case and decided to write the material for a larger band that could allow the improvising talents of the individual players to flourish in the context of richly scored compositions and arrangements. Originally inspired by a lesson with the great New York tenor player (and nonet leader) Walt Weiskopf and also by the records of legendary composer/arrangers Thad Jones, Kenny Wheeler, Bill Holman, Jim McNeely, Jimmy Heath and Herbie Hancock amongst others, the septet features Gareth's dynamic original compositions which draw on influences ranging from contemporary jazz, gospel and world music.
Between them the members of the Septet have performed/recorded with Kenny Wheeler, Jack DeJohnette, Bheki Mseleku, Pete King, Hans Koller, Anita Wardell, Bobby Watson, Steve Grossman, Jim Mullen, Sam Rivers, Donald Harrison, James Morrison, Jazz Jamaica, Incognito, The James Taylor Quartet and the Gwilym Simcock Nonet/Big Band.

PRESS

"the formidable Lockrane...a stunning display of sharp-accented runs, earthy whoops and constantly refreshed melodic ideas" John Fordham,The Guardian
"Lockrane is an exceptional soloist with an improvisatory confidence that's quite startling” Peter Vacher,Jazzwise
"...the flute, an instrument which has still not achieved a firm foothold in jazz. If the brilliant playing of Gareth Lockrane is anything to go by, that state of affairs may change...” Dave Gelly,The Observer
“..Flute phenomenon!...” Jack Massarick, London Evening Standard
“a new star on his instrument” Jim Mullen
"Gareth Lockrane.... his trademark blend of lightness and robustness" Chris Parker,Vortexjazz
