5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back Denys!, 28 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Identity By Subtraction (Audio CD)
It's been eight years since multi award winning saxophonist Denys Baptiste's last recording 'lLet Freedom Ring!' was Jazzwise Magazine's Album Of The Year 2003. Since that time he has been bringing up a family and working for the Arts Council, and not making the mistake of recording again until he felt he was really ready to do so. This album proves he was right to do just that - it's wonderful and well worth the wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars A new artist, a new company and something very special, 24 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Jazzlotion E.P. (MP3 Download)
Peter Edwards is a remarkable pianist and introduces the new jazzlotion label with an E.P. of superb compositions showing just how exciting and satisfying a jazz trio can really be. Recorded directly to stereo tape with no overdubs or mixdown, the audio quality is breathtaking and only highlights the excellent performances from Peter, bassit Max Luthert and drummer Saleem Raman.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must listen to this album!, 11 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Unseen (MP3 Download)
Rarely does a new songwriter surface with the ability to express their feelings in such an honest way, and to sing about them with such a beautiful and expressive voice. Well, Ellie Williams is just such an artist, and Unseen is a wonderful album featuring 11 top notch songs, especially the beautiful 'Fin's Song' which will surely become her signature. The instrumentation is sparse yet just right for the repertoire with Ellie's supportive piano in the foreground. And the sympathetic production by producer/engineer Tony Platt is pristine and always sharply focused. Ellie raised the recording budget for Unseen on the SellaBand fan funding platform. It took her only 50 days to raise the necessary $50,000 - an amazing feat for a previously unknown artist. But with a talent like hers, Ellie will be very well known indeed before long.

4.0 out of 5 stars A long lost classic, 31 May 2009
This review is from: Pullin' Together (MP3 Download)
Of all the second division southern rock bands on Capricorn Records in the wake of the Allman Brothers Band and The Marshall Tucker Band, Grinderswitch were probably my favourite. This album came a little after their 'Pickin The Blues' heyday (John Peel show theme tune) and follows on from their true classic album 'Macon Tracks'. The songwriting is excellent especially on the opener 'Higher Ground' and atmospheric 'Open Road', and is firmly rooted in the southern rock genre. The main man is undoubtedly Dru Lombar who sadly passed away only recently - a wonderful singer and guitar player with a clean Les Paul tone and a soulful slide guitar technique. Unavailable for many years and only recently reissued, sounds dated in the nicest possible way and is extremely enjoyable.
