Fresh, fluid, inventive and quite simply stunning! This is a fantastic release by a musician who has not just the technique, but also a deep creative sense of composing; shaping the music and, importantly, letting it 'breathe'. If you like Keith Jarrett, particualrly with his 70s Scandanavian quartet; Brad Mehldau; the late-90s Branford Marsalis Qt with the late, great Kenny Kirkland on piano,or the melodic, brightness of another deeply missed genius, Michel Petrucianni, together with a splash of Weather Report on one number, then this is guaranteed to make you smile.

There's such a wealth of lovely musical things going on throughout this album. To be sure, some might prefer to hear a bit more of Gwilym (and I would strongly recommend the excellent Spike Wells trio cd 'Reverance' if this is the case)- but the album is worth it alone just for his trio reworking of the standard,'The way you look tonight! Moreover, Gwilym's backing the other musicians is a marvel, rather like watching George Best weave his way through an opposition's defense with breathtaking spontaneity.

The musicians playing are world class: John Parricelli is as strong and versatile as ever on guitar, and Martin France and Phil Donkin on drums and bass respectively, are perfect for Gwilym's style. Arguably the biggest bonus on this disc is the beautifully rich saxophone playing of Stan Sulzmann who's rather like a 'warm' Garbarek on tenor, and who's own music just gets better and better. The music is wonderfully brought to life by an excellent production by Jason Yarde, and sleeve design and notes that complement and complete what is, in my opinion, 69 minutes and 16 seconds of special musical creativity.

At this price it's hard not to be happy!
Musically this album is edgy but very listenable! Shades of Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul and Jason Rebello to my ear but very much his own style!
Cracking debut album, his current work with the Impossible Gentlemen is another level!
He will be spoken of in years to come as one of THE great pianists.

Top guy to talk to aswell!

Original, contemporary and inspired are just some of the words which come to mind to describe this CD. The more I listen to and become familiar with this rythmically complex musical creation, the more I discover and enjoy it. It features terrific interaction between every member of the band and a fascinating fusion of musical influences. Very impressive!

Every so often there comes an album that is just a little bit special,and this is one of those.
Gwilym has produced a lovely album that exudes all that is beat about British jazz./
The packaging is good(A three fold out sleeve with booklet)
This talented 27 year old musician has ahad a busy year,he wrote and performed at the BBC proms,and impressed many with live performances throughout the year.
The album is beautifully produced and played and the band is exceptional
(Phil Donkin Bass and Martin France Drums) support is given by the ever reliable Stan Sulzmann(Tenor Sax)John Parriceelli Guitars Ben Bryant percussion.
The tracks are mainly self Composed and show a promissing carreeer is what we can expect from Simcock in the future,
