5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back, 13 Jun 2012
This review is from: Saltash Bells (Audio CD)
This is another brilliant solo effort from John Surman easily the match and probably better than all his previous solo efforts on ECM. This time the synthesiser loop programming and added instrumentation such as harmonica is a bit more sophisticated and really adds weight to the arrangements rather than providing an interesting backdrop to the solo reed work. Mr Surman is a world class musician and composer who has never stood still and remains one of the most enthustiastic performers I have had the pleasure to support for the last 40 odd years. Long may he continue. Hopefully this will win the token no-hope jazz nomination in the next Mercury Prize - it may just do better than expected. In concert, he is simply amazing and never fails to give his all. What this man can play on a simple child's recorder is a thing of wonder and beauty. Thanks to the magnificent ECM label, hopefully he will continue to produce material of this high qulaity for many years to come.
