Reviews of Patrick Naylor

 

01/01/2004 Tony Hall

Patrick Naylor’s Soundial - Review in Jazzwise Magazine 2003
Readers might recall that one of last year's most outstanding albums for me was composer/arranger David Beebee's Gaya, which featured his 9-piece band. (They gave one musically exciting, if sparsely attended, concert at Croydon's Fairfield Hall.) Naylor is Beebee's guitarist, heard here to excellent effect on electric and acoustic. This is his second set as a leader and is very much on the cusp of jazz and world music, containing elements of Turkish, Balkan, Brazilian and reggae rhythms among others.

He's (Naylor) a highly articulate, mellow musician, whose solos all have great warmth and swing in a quiet, understated way. East, by the way, is really Ian Price, who has been a mainstay of all BeeBoss albums. Apparently, there are three Ian Price's, so he's taken his partner's surname to avoid further confusion. His laid-back tenor and soprano (also flute) work beautifully with Naylor's various guitars and Beebee himself makes his own important contribution on bass, Fell's percussive effects are an additional asset on his two tracks. Very soothing background music, which will kill conversation! - Tony Hall

 

01/03/2000 JACK MASSARIK in the EVENING STANDARD

Now and again itís worth looking beyond the major labels to the teeming underworld of Britianís self-produced aldums .... Naylors guitars - an Ibanez semi-acoustic and a Lowden steel-strung acoustic- could say much the same thing - [His writing is full of phrases natural to play, based on chord progressions easy on the ear. After a couple of numbers the soloists know they are in capable hands]. Their owner is a sensitive, unflashy player, rather like the American guitarist Ralph Towner, a favourite of his. Both in his writing and playind, Naylor looks for a shapely melody line, even in the heat of improvisation. The others, saxophonist Ian Price, bassist David Beebee and drummer Sean Randal, share his aims and contribute unhurried solos and elegant interplay. Last year Beebee and Price were co-leaders of an impressive debut album, Momentito. Then Beebee played piano, here heís on bass. Itís easy to see him Price and Naylor as charter members of a new British jazz movement - if they can be heard.
