Reviews

 

09/09/2002 Gillian Nash - Logo Magazine

"One of a legion of highly talented artists operating well under the cultural radar, Ruth Hammond boasts an impressive CV that includes saxophone duties with Morcheeba, time served as a Hammond organist with the Forster-Hammond Trio and a slot on Jools Holland’s ‘Later…’. This solo debut reveals an artist inspired by - though not in thrall to - a classical strain of singer-songwriting that takes the dynamics of late-period Sting and the intuition of Stevie Wonder, marrying it to the bruised honesty of James Taylor and the languid acid jazz of the other James Taylor and wrapping the results up in a Judie Tzuke shaped bag. Hammond’s skill is in bending these influences to her will to create new flavours from familiar ingredients; her closest contemporary in terms of scope and invention is Thea Gilmore, replacing the latter’s acid wit with alternating 3am introspection and loose-limbed funk. That ‘All The Good Things’ could have been released at any time since 1979 is a tribute to its all-encompassing scope and those aforementioned classical sensibilities".
