I first discovered John Surmans music after hearing it used in Slavas Snow Show and have since become a great admirer. This new work is his best yet. I find I can't stop and gaze into the distance every time I play it. Haunting, evocative, atmospheric music unlike anything you're likely to have heard before. Never clichéd, it conjures beautiful images that are uniquely English. The guys a genius and deserves all the praise he appears to be getting in these reviews. Thank you John for my jazz album of the year.
