Product Description


A phenomenally well-equipped tenor saxophonist, with a strong, weighty tone and ample technique, Denys Baptiste makes an auspicious debut with this, his first album as leader. Although still young enough to be winning jazz awards in the "new star" category, he is a player of great maturity. He paces his improvisation with the economy and rhythmic poise of a master, always sure-footed, never afraid to leave eloquent space around his phrases. The rest of the band constitutes an admirably sharp rhythm section, with pianist Andrew McCormack and bassist Larry Bartley so well attuned to one another that they sound like one instrument. There are 10 numbers altogether, covering a wide range of tempo and mood and guest vocalist Julia Roberts adds a final touch of distinction with a version of Stevie Wonder's "Have A Talk With God". The crisp studio sound is a credit to producer Gary Crosby. An enthralling set in all respects. --Dave Gelly

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing live, great on CD. 6 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I saw these guys in the Barbican Centre, London, I immediately decided that they were one of the most exciting quartets I had ever seen. Their ensemble was astounding, and was pointed by Ms. Roberts' powerful singing. The new work is sturdy, and original stuff, and the old standards and the album are played in a new and interesting way. This CD is by far the most listened to in my collection and I would sell my Grandmother before this work of art.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good first outing. 19 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Emerging UK tenor player with a very professional debut CD. Second half of the CD is much better than the weaker first. The Stevie Wonder 'Have a Talk With God' doesn't really belong with the rest. You can hear a very strong Michael Brecker influence in some of his tracks, so if you're a Brecker fan, you'll love this guy. Excellent range from ballads like 'Shades of Green' to the furious 'Of Stars'. The latter is a much better platform for his skills. He's great when he just lets rip. Faultless band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant young BRITISH Jazz Artist! 21 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
Great album he writes fantastic tunes. Nominated for the Mecury Music Prize and won a MOBO you wont be disappointed. The band are great but the sax is sublime. And Denys seems to really care about the compositions rather than just make them a vehicle for his soloing. Steve
