Product Description

Product Description

'Flight Mode' is the seventh solo album from Chris Garrick, the UK's leading improvising violinist.

Award-winning violinist Chris Garrick takes a break between guest appearances with Wynton Marsalis and Nigel Kennedy to release 'Flight Mode'. Taking his lead from Stephane Grappelli, Stuff Smith and Jean Luc Ponty, Chris Garrick has revitalised jazz violin playing so that it has been rejuvenated for the 21st century, prompting Nigel Kennedy to call him one of the best in Europe and for Maxim Vengerov to request lessons!

'Flight Mode' features Garrick in mercurial form, performing infectious lyrical music on acoustic violin and electric four and seven string instruments. Thrilling accompaniment is provided by David Gordon (Jacqui Dankworth, Respectable Groove) on piano and synths, Tom Hooper (Grace Jones) on drums and Ole Rasmussen (Duke Ellington Big Band, Peter Gullin) on double bass.


(4 stars) Anchored in the rhythms of funk, latin jazz and gospel...gives full reign to Garrick's virtuosity and wit. -- Financial Times, (Mike Hobart), November 20, 2010

(4 stars) Chris Garrick has the range and depth of a master...a compelling, mature statement by a musician in his prime. -- MOJO, (Chris Ingham), January 2011

(4 stars) Garrick continues to evolve as a violinist and composer...File him under Thinking Improvisers Who Also Swing. -- Evening Standard, (Jack Massarik), November 19, 2010

Violinist Chris Garrick has a classical musician's meticulousness...Stephane Grappelli's relish for flat-out swingers and Nigel Kennedy's rock and electronic music inflections. -- The Guardian, (John Fordham), November 19, 2010
