Having only recently expanded my musical interests (psyche,metal,rock/fusion,classical) to avant-garde/post-bop jazz I was pleasantly surprised to find some of it, through works such as this, much more approachable and listenable than I had anticipated (compared to other examples of Dave's work I have heard anyway!) Having heard "Catalyst" on a late night BBC show I made it my first "serious" jazz purchase, finding plenty of new things on each hearing. The sound quality on this album is fantastic, and the playing is faultless, spiced up with a bit of electric guitar, great percussion and a few keyboard effects. By the way, folks, there's a lot to be said for picking up an instrument (any) and learning the "nuts and bolts" of music - it sharpens your ear and broadens your mind. Definitely hooked now - glad to join the jazz club!
