Customer Review

on 17 April 2010
This is an outstanding album. Representative of his determination to step beyond pure jazz sensibilities, `Chasing Reality' finds Gerard on a mission to recall the influences he draws from Miles Davis and Clifford Brown while presenting the unique and exploratory style he has developed for himself.

The music is never constrained here. The grooves are funky, the be-bop and free form sensibilities are deeply apparent and the flow is expansive enough to allow the likes of Geoff Keezer on piano and Joe Locke on vibraphone to stretch out and really enjoy their roles. Chris Dagley is equally creative, driving hard and punctuating the blend with some clever fills however it's the horn soloing that really captivates. Long lines and vibrato keep the listener interested and excited. It's elegant, passionate and attacking playing all wrapped up together and delivered over a pulsing and at times drum `n' bass oriented rhythm section.

An enormous album that confirms Gerard Presencer as one of the finest musicians the UK has to offer.
