Here is a first and full review by Chris Parker:
Branco Stoysin Trio, 5th new album
“QUIET STREAM BREAKS THE ROCKS”
on Sun Recordings label.


Full review by Chris Parker, “Jazz at Ronnie Scott’s” and “Vortex”, March 2007:


“This is the fifth album from Branco Stoysin, a self-taught guitarist born in Novi Sad in the former Yugoslavia, and like his others, it showcases not only his extraordinary yet entirely natural-sounding technique but also his wide-ranging musical taste, which embraces everything from bop (the album concludes with a rousing exploration of the changes of 'Confirmation') to Brazilian and Yugoslav traditional music.

His rhythm section, Leslee Booth on 6-string electric bass and drummer Buster Birch, provide discreet, supple but surprisingly powerful support throughout, but it is Stoysin's filigree delicacy – particularly on the plangent traditional melodies that constitute the centrepiece of the album, but also on his originals, whether they're minor blues ('Miss D'), solo features ('Amber') or absorbing multi-tempo pieces (the title-track and its successor, 'Where a River Meets the Sea') – that marks him out as one of the most skilful, lyrical acoustic guitarists on the current scene.

His ear for an affecting melody is faultless, and the fluency of his improvisations ditto; this is an unalloyed treat throughout its 52 minutes and comes warmly recommended.” C.P.
