Neon Quartet is made up of four extraordinary musicians equipped with strong personalities and individual sounds but it s when the four play together that the magic really happens. Led by legendary British saxophonist Stan Sulzmann, this bass-less quartet combine values of experience with the freshness and vitality of youth. Featuring three of the most talked about and in demand players of their generation - Kit Downes, Jim Hart and Tim Giles - Subjekt looks set to firmly root this formidable band as one of the most exciting and leading chamber jazz ensembles in the UK scene. Neon Quartet s first album Catch Me was described by the Guardian as purposefully hip and vibrant , while the Irish Times praised their use of harmony, imaginative interplay and rhythmical flexibility. With Subjekt, it s all this and more there s a clearer vision, stronger ensemble sound and greater collective spirit than ever before. Subjekt is a giant step up and looks set to take them to levels beyond the imagination.
You want sweet melody, you want out , you want grooves, big themed romance, intimate introspection and shouts of joy? Then enquire within. For Stan is your man. FOUR STARS --Jazzwise
