5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative and Imaginative, 23 Aug 2005
Polar Bear are a group that have got a lot of press attention and deservedly so, here are a group keeping jazz alive without resorting to age-old cliches of the genre and incorporating elements of other styles to create some appeal to a young audience. Seb Rochford's compositions are simple yet they are strong improvisational frameworks which the two tenor players certainly take advantage of. If I were to pick a favourite track it would be 'Fluffy' which mixes acoustic jazz with drum and bass drum patterns, and uses rhythmic editing for some exciting sounds. Unlike their counterpart group (sharing three of four members) Acoustic Ladyland, the group do not use any electric or electronic instruments which adds a strange edge to their cutting edge music, in that the acoustic sound is not what you expect. Top marks!

5.0 out of 5 stars just what you need..., 19 Jan 2007

This is a fantastic record - totally fresh sounding without leaving the familiar in the dust.

Funky, soulful, weird, it's got it all, without resorting to nu-jazz schmaltz or jamband noodlery.

Get it, as well as Dim Lit.
