5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful and I'm delighted
Being a self-confessed Metheny Group addict, I was ready to be unimpressed, so I'm delighted I was wrong. The sublime fusion crafted by The Impossible Gentlemen easily fills the gap left whilst we wait for the successor to The Way Up. Gwilym Simcock may just be the person we look to take over from Esbjorn Svensson, easily surpassing Brad Mehldau in my opinion. I'm also...

3.0 out of 5 stars TIME GENTLEMEN PLEASE

This seems to be ,on the surfaces a Mike Walker album as he has written about half the album,his guitar style particularly on the slower songs tends towards the John Scofield school of playing,particularly...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning statement of intent... Buy now!!!, 11 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Impossible Gentlemen (Audio CD)
This debut from The Impossible Gentlemen is full to bursting with accessible melodies, burning ensemble and solo instrumental prowess and most importantly, heart. You can hear the question and answer processes between this quartet of stellar musicians as they rip joyously through the wide ranging compositions, their seemingly telepathic understanding allowing the pieces to develop spectacularly. Highlights include the heart wrenching ballad "When You Hold Her" and the group interplay on "You Won't Be Around To See It" - all in all this album is a stunning statement of intent from a band you will be hearing a lot more from.

This seems to be ,on the surfaces a Mike Walker album as he has written about half the album,his guitar style particularly on the slower songs tends towards the John Scofield school of playing,particularly on the beautiful"Gwills Song" which for me is the highlight of the whole set.
The whole album is very pleasant to listen to,but after Simcocks excellent recent albumsGwilym Simcock - Good Days at Schloss ElmauBlues VignettePerception,i was expecting an album with more clarity.
The albums closer"Sure would baby" is a nice take on the blues.
Gwilym Simcock.....Piano
Mike Walker.....Guitar
Steve Swallow.....Bass

This review is from: The Impossible Gentlemen (Audio CD)
This product is wonderful and apart from it playing really well in the cd player and also on my computer, the album art inside is entertaining. Overall, it was an excellent purchase and great value for money.
