Just bought the latest Gillespie/Atzmon CD from the appropriately named Albion Beatnik bookshop in Jericho, Oxford. Sarah's second album is another generous ladle-full of beat-pop, gypsy jazz (and whatever), from-the belt-singing. Echoes of Bessie Smith, Aretha Franklin, even Joan Baez. Lyrics for the literate and a musical cadence of jazz, middle eastern and folk that stream together like rushing musical currents. Excellent production, rawer and more intimate than her first.
Listening to it now, the song that stands out for me most is How the West Was Won. Reminds me of the best of Dylan. The lyrics alone are a powerful indictment of western imperial play in the ME from Guantanomo, torture, rendition and occupation; powerful words for a status quo that won't just fade away. Very highly recommended.

Me and the wife went to the local pub in Glossop (The Globe) and saw that the Sarah Gillespie Trio was playing. Never heard of them before, but we thought it was worth 8 to go and see a band. They were fantastic, they were quite musically complex compared to your usual chart fare, but very accessible. We're not musos (last thing we went to see was "We Will Rock You" musical !), but thoroughly enjoyed the gig (what's with the tables and chairs though ? - I wanted to get up and dance) Afterwards they were selling the CDs, I bought all three (the 2 Sarah Gillespie CDs which she signed for us, and the Gilad Atzmon CD). I can't stop playing "In the Current Climate", all the tracks are very strong and they mostly avoid any whimsy or self indulgence - all that musical talent blends together for the sake of the song, not to individually showcase their undoubted incredible musicianship. Lyrically it's a mix of political and personal themes, overall it's really hard to pick a favourite but "How the West was Won" and "I Forget To Get Off Trains" make me cry every time I hear them (for different reasons)

I went to see her recently at an obscure small venue- 'The Mad Ferret', Preston - as a friend had recommended this band. I'd heard Gilad Atzmon's playing on the radio and knew that at least I would be sure to enjoy his eloquent reeds. I did - but was not as prepared to be so instantly impressed by the sophisticated, genre-defying, vocal compass of Sarah Gillespie! Not only that, her words are written and delivered in a manner which is wholly persuasive, intriguing, inveigling. An elusive lyricism.
This hard-working band deserves the professional exposure of say .. 'The Jools Holland Show'. But whilst they are still accessible and playing intimate venues - go see them - you wont be disappointed! Her CDs also contain all her lyrics - worthy of publication as poetry.

In the Current Climate is Sarah Gillespie's second album and was once again produced by Gilad Atzmon. Songwriting of the highest order, clarity in the delivery (not a lot of that around these days) and a range of emotions to move the spirit. Add to that an exceptional band and you have an album that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of "new" artists. Atzmon's understated but direct production lifts the music, everything is crystal clear. Her nearest literary equilavent is Mr. Zimmerman himself, she is that good. If you haven't picked up on Sarah work yet, then this is a great staring point. Catch her live too.

I have loved Sarah Gillespie since discovering her 2009 release 'Stalking Juliet' and thought she had disappeared from the scene. I only found her follow-up recently through Google and was delighted to find that it is every bit as good and even more innovative than Stalking Juliet. Sarah is not only a wonderful singer and poet but the settings to her songs combine everything that I love in contemporary music, using jazz and ethnic influences to reinforce beautifully the dynamics of her songs. Looking forward to her next release later this year

Bought on a whim after hearing a Radio 3 interview and some of the music. Given as a Christmas present and well received!

I listened with pleasure to this CD and was glad I'd bought another one as a gift for a friend. It came as a surprise when leafing idly through another friend's Jewish Chronicle to find how controversial the group is among my circle of relatives, friends and acquaintances. Luckily the opinions of the recipent chime with mine, as one might expect - I don't buy presents for just anyone - so not only do we have a good listening experience but we also have an interesting talking point.

Sarah Gillespie is a remarkable artist and this album is just as good as the earlier 'Stalking Juliet'. I think it took me a little longer to get into and I have found that seeing live performances by Sarah and the brilliant band helped me get much more out of both albums. They are terrific live! The album is musically very complex and each listening reveals new layers. The production (as well as the playing, as always) by Gilad Atzmon is outstanding. Really outstanding. Personal favourite track is 'How The West Was Won'.
