Product Description

Product Description

The sparkling debut album from one of Britain's most in-demand pianists. Great tunes masterfully interpreted with verve, originality and humour. The tight-knit ensemble, with Jeremy Brown on Bass and Matt Skelton on drums, integrate seamlessly throughout this highly-approachable mainstream jazz album.

Review

..a 14-track sugar-rush of auditory pleasure. An inspired, and inspiring, debut. -- Jazzwise Magazine

If you like Oscar Peterson, you'll like James Pearson. -- Malcolm Laycock, Big Band World Magazine

It's easy to hear why big things are expected of James.. -- The Musician magazine

Pearson is an ultra-assured technician who is not afraid of dabbling in the more romantic end of the swing-to-bop repertoire. -- The Times

This is the kind of jazz piano album anyone can enjoy. The up tempo numbers swing joyously... -- The Observer

This is an outrageously fine recording. Pearson is a wonderful pianist with a subtle touch and an extraordinary technique. Couple that with some genius arrangements, this is a top notch recording..

I highly recommend this CD - you will NOT be disappointed.
